You Want Me To Believe In God ?

You want me to believe in God
Shut my eyes, clasp my hands and pray
Iím a man no way

You want me to worship, in Church on knees all bowed
No way, Iím a man itís not allowed

You want me to read the Bible, and live a life without sin
Come on, Iím a man and my faith is very thin

You want me to be a Christian, wear a cross
Stick a fish on my car
This has gone way to far
Iím a man


Iím a man and I say listen to the words being said
Get them straight, sort them out
Think them through in your head
You will see that itís true and change everything that you do
You will be filled with strength and stand tall
Itís not me that wants you to believe
But you that needs to accept it all
Do not fear the leap of faith
Plunge in and make a start
Our Lord will show you your path.
And never again will you be just a man

Hey, I like this. Great ending!

Poetically speaking, the first few verses were nicely done; but then the last one lost it's rhythm...; however, the theme was great, the artistic talent is there, and I liked it! Thank you for sharing your God given talent with your peers. God bless.

I agree with Marilyn - the last stanza threw me off a bit, but it captured very well the voice of a man who finds it hard to believe that he is not master of himself. Lots to really like about this. God bless
