Topic: Ohhh…. (02/04/10)

TITLE: THE PROOF

I’m a scholar with a degree;
My plaque says PhD.
An expert with knowledge
From an Ivy League college,
I’m smart and sure you’d agree.

I can prove life began with a spot,
A dot most exceedingly hot.
I’ve studied the stars
Between Earth and Mars;
A Nobel peace prize paid for my yacht.

From nothing came space, time, and matter;
That space has grown to be fatter.
Like balloons that are blown,
The expanding unknown
Has become the world on a platter.

Now take CMB radiation,
A heat remnant explanation;
For the Big Bang was hot,
And the world’s mostly not;
Facts are proven by close observation.

Who could doubt the world’s evolution?
Strong species create substitution;
The creatures that thrive
Are the strong who survive;
Mutations must be the solution.

To others I may seem aloof
By spending my life seeking proof;
Each fact has a reason
As the sun causes seasons,
And gravity pulls rain off a roof.

Even now I see a formation,
A light that’s blinding the nation.
That trumpet’s so loud!
Is that God in the cloud?
Was I wrong in my estimation?

Ohhh…I wish that I had thought twice
Of my childhood pastor’s advice:
“Believe in God’s word;
Your prayers will be heard;
In the end you won’t pay the price.”

Ohhh…I see the love I ignored
From the One I should have adored;
He gave me sight
And created the light,
And now I must bow to the Lord.

Nice touch. Memorable poem

Clever poem! Great illustration of the pride of man's "knowledge" vs. the wisdom of God. Truly, "every knee shall bow"! Nicely written.

Great poem,rich in truth...I've seen the pride of knowledge/education come crashing down a time or two with the power of prayer.
Lisa Tyre02/17/10
Well done! I rarely comment on poems, but this one was very clever.
Beth LaBuff 02/20/10
Perfect for the topic! I enjoyed the "scholarliness" of your MC and his "ohhh!" moment. This is well thought out and well-written (with a cool poetic format) and a timely message! Nice work!!

Great ministering piece about waking up, BEFORE it's too late.
