Poetry Corner: Conviction

Awake. Be humble. Love. Watch. Listen. Pray. Do.

I saw continuity
I saw eternity

There must be something more
than this daily, ordinary life

A high beauty
forever beyond the reach of all evil


"Why do you believe in God?
It is not that you have seen Him?"

I looked above
It was a magnificent starry evening
Millions, billions of sparkles in the sky
Bright, brilliant, and beautiful

I smiled

"No, I have not."

I am no saint nor holy man
I'm just an ordinary girl

Maybe I have never seen the face of God
I do not need to

I have seen the work of His hand

And I do not BELIEVE...

... I KNOW


Round Rock, Texas, Spring 2004
