"What If Your're Wrong ? poem by Lori Fiechter"

John and Doves,

This is one of our favorite poems by Lori. Maybe some lurkers -- or even our acquaintances -- may give this a second thought.
We will post some more of Lori's poetry from time to time.

What if You're Wrong?

You've lived your whole life
Avoiding the question
But the pothole grows larger,
It is gaping and wide.
Someday, you'll fall in--
But for now, you will skirt it;
You have taken that question
And pushed it aside
.

You have faith in yourself,
In mankind or in Science;
You've swept God to a
bleak, dusty shelf of your mind.
You don't see the need
for a personal Savior;
And even if you did --
Well, you haven't the time.

God is all right for others --
As a crutch for the weak.
But you've managed without Him,
You have gotten along.
Yes, you've lived your whole life
denying eternity --
Denying God's judgment --

But what if you're wrong?
