I have faith that after the darkest night,
the sun will rise in the east morning light.
I have faith that new leaves, at last,
will reappear after the deep winter fast.
I have faith that it will rain on me,
and the gentle rain will flow to the sea.
I have faith that love will strike,
and young people will love make.
Long after this world that I know,
is changed and gone, faith lives on.
I have no faith in the politics of man,
no belief that religion controls or can.
Make me into something that I'm not.
For deep inside I know what's rot.
The world's knowledge will steer me right,
so that I don't have to lose sleep at night.
Worrying about it.
