This poem is already on the spiritual board but, it also fits nicely on this board too.
Ever since I was young,
I wanted to learn about God.
I was never sure what was to become
because, when times was hard.
As times went on, I praised him
and use him as a mental emblem.
As usual I had questions
because, my mind was always second-guessing.
I've often wondered,
which answer to this question was right,
is God black or is he white?
I wanted to know
because, I looked at him with two different eyesights.
But one day, I know that the truth,
will eventually come out in the light.
I tried to erase my doubts and fears
but, the mist ain't gone, I can still see clear.
As a child, I was given a religion with no answer to why,
I was just told to believe in him
because, for me he died.
But curiosity killed the cat
because, I knew that there was more to that.
So in wisdom books, I reached back
and I kept reading,
until my knowledge began to stack.
Now my mind was no longer black
because, I know more and now my soul is intact.
I've read the books of Zen and Tao,
keeping my brain well-rounded as a bagel.
I've also read the Koran and the Bible
because, they're all vital
and they gave me hope and revival.
I recommend these books
because the truth is within them, read them boys,
you can skim them like you eating Chips Ahoy.
I now use religion
as my eternal vision.
Religion should be a natural way of life.
Organized religion such as people telling me who I should pray to,
just ain't right.
And I don't care if he's black or white
because all that matters is that,
he represents what's right.
You can call him God or Allah
but they're the same thing as heavenly father.
I'm just gonna preach the holy words to my brothers
and praise God like no other
because, when the Lord trumpet blows,
only the God-chosen ones goes.
