Faith

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.
We see what we want
