Following is a poem by a 13 year old friend of mine - Regardless of your religious preferences - you might appreciate this expression of an inner journey of youth...
A caress of comfort
across a star covered sky
makes you ponder
how in the world did this evolution of man occur.
Was it pure science or the almightiy power of a being greater than any mere human?
As I gaze upon the moon,
my eyes wander to a single flower
bowing to and fro in the gentle wind.
The moonlight glistens on a small dewdrop
rolling down the delicate petal.
It makes you wonder
It makes you think
Is there a God?
Surely something great must have created this wonder...
I look up at a mysterious tree
which rustles in the night air,
it reminds you
somewhat of a lonely person with no one to talk to
no one to care for
It reminds me of myself
Then I hear the sound of a loving mother
calling to me and I realise,
there is a God.
