A Few Quick Questions

When I ask a question, I mean no disrespect;
I just don't accept all the dogma from those that we elect.
I don't believe that any guru, shaman, preacher, or priest
Has any more line to holiness than those we honor least.

I love the faith of little children, and the joy they find within,
Until someone convinces them that they were born in sin.
What is a small child to do to erase the parental taints?
Aren't even those who died before birth already little saints?

Why would Our Creator continue making pagan babes
If there is no way that their souls can be saved?
I believe that if we give our lives over to loving ways,
The spirit of holiness will spread to all who for it pray.


  1. Y, another good poem - raising some serious theological questions. There are answers for some of them in the Bible. But for some questions - we (because we are human with a limited understanding) do NOT have the answers.

  2. I have always thought it was healthy to question things in life that are accepted by some and rejected by others.

    There was one in the scriptures who said, 'let each one of us work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.'

    I try to do what is right, I don't always accomplish, but I try!

    Love the poem though, it is deep, and food for thought!
