What do you really believe?
Is it what you say you believe?
Do you believe in a supreme creator?
A deity of all power
And an all knowing watching eye
Do you believe he is watching you right now?
Judging you for an eternal time
Is this what you really believe
Or is just what you say you believe?
Could you really act the way you do
The lies, the cheating, the horrible darkness
You add to an already dark world
The selfishness, the cruelty, and meanness
You show to other people every day
When you go out into the world
Could you really behave this way?
If you really believed you were being judged
By a deity with the power
To cast you into an eternal spiritual torment
Would the world be an endless cycle
Of hate, wars, cruelty, brutality, torture, and pain
If this is what people truly believed at their inner core?
No. The answer is no.
But who, of all of the people out there
Will admit this is so?
