Believing is the motto we gotta live by

When I lay upon my pillow at night
I go deep in my mind and know everything is alright
For the things that awake me, will never forsake me
I Remember, what makes me stronger, can never break me
And what is not a stealer, for it can not take me
And for what protects me, will never danger me
What is the motto for living life?
For young teens commit suicide and husbands leave their wife
For the human nature is wrong but they only know right
For the people who believe in God and the ones who don't
For the ones who worships God and the ones who won't
God gives us choices, he wants us to choose
For if we don't play his game, at the end, we all lose
For the 10 commandments that some of us don't follow
We live tomorrow today and don't cherish life tomorrow
For our being we're not promised the next day
You can't succeed in life if you don't live life His way
This is not for atheists and not even for the people who believe
It's for our mind, so in your mind, this message you receive
I'm not telling you to believe in God if you don't
Because that is not my job so I won't
Just use this tool to build your knowledge
For the answer you know and we all know that is modest
In God's eye, we're all brothers and sisters, in this we learn
Just prepare yourself for the rapture of when Jesus returns

I like it, and that's amazing. I usually don't even take the time to read poems that are about / have anything to do with 'God' and / or 'Religion'. But all in all, great job, keep it up! (:

OMG! I LOVE THIS! I am a Christian and God takes up the majority of my time. I do dramas with the youth, I sing in the choir, and we go and minister at other churches whenever possible. You are right, its not our job to get someone to believe, that's up to them, it's just our job to speard the word. you did a fantastic job!

it's a nice poem but i don't agree with you on smth , yes we do have choices in our life but it doesn't matter the path you follow you destiny is already written ... we all may fight and believe we can do whatever we want but real life is more complicated , so many times you will find yourself on a crossroad and the doubt will come! Nevertheless you write with your heart and your msg is hope so you writing is very good

This one is very interesting, your words are very smooth and relaxing. A nice touch for the word "Belief", it is represented as one of man's purposes on this earth. I like it :)

Thank you very much :)

It had a very nice message. Also, I liked how you said you weren't trying to convince people to believe in God, as that would most likely upset some. Good job :)
