When was the last time you stopped to smell the roses
To listen to the birds or to examine the beauty in a flower
When was the last time you took a moment to just imagine
What it took to give us life, the wisdom, the love, the power.
Did it all come about as a big bang of primordial gas
With the order in the universe I can’t discount a God
For those that want to discount all that with evolution
I feel sorry for them and the path they will have trod.
As with most I don’t try to talk politics or religion very much
No easier way to get on the wrong side of family or friends
But when I find some that want to lead us down a path of denial
I feel pity for them denying the existence of One on which life depends.
If all these wonders, whether plant or animal, even the Earth and stars
Came about by chance and without there being a greater intellect in design
Then the inbuilt instincts of animals or our own desire to worship something greater
Would mean nothing and from this short life that we have, we might as well resign.
