The Agnostic

I would that God would stand and spare
a minute, just to prove He’s there.
It seems so odd that He insists
we can’t know whether he exists.
It leaves us in a state of doubt
uncertain what it's all about.


“How can I stand and spare a minute?
I’m outside space and time, not in it.”
So, even though I deeply care,
I am not part of ‘when’ and ‘where’,
which circumscribe the lives you lead;
but give the time and space you need
to wonder how things came to be
made by a God you cannot see,
and of whom most are unaware.

Despite the fact you can’t see Me,
and may well wonder if I’m there; 
yet know at least this much is true,
you cannot shake My faith in you.
