Creating Evolution

I never thought I would meet someone
Who would say the things that you do
Someone else might say it for fun
But no-one else would believe it all too

How can you believe what you say
And say that it is what you believe
Turn it around and tell us you pray
Come to stay and just get up and leave

It is not that I don’t believe you
When you tell me all that you see
But how can you believe in one thing too
And in something that says it can not be

You say it all came through creation
A moment from some divine almighty being
And then that it is all a continuing evolution
There is no confusion in what you are seeing

You say you believe in the prophets too
But don’t understand a thing that they say
That it is all ordained beyond what you do
And you waste your time and pray

How can you believe in more than one thing
And then believe in something else as well
What can all this confused thinking bring
Other than to put your mind through hell

I would prefer to only believe in one
And have no doubt about the other
When it is all said and again done
How can you say that any are your brother

I was confused before I heard you say
All the things that bring you to believe in
And cause you to feel the need to pray
Your mind must be a constant din

Yet you tell me that you are in peace in there
Although you can not articulate it in a word
Or show me one thing or tell me where
The truth in any of it can be heard

You tell me not to believe anything that is written
That it is nothing but the manipulations of man
But to see what is in it and every word that is given
And you will come to believe everything that you can

How can you be happy in the things you see
And not be confused and angry as I am
You say you just ask how existence came to be
And not to try to believe some none-existent plan

Be happy with just coming into being
And see that as the gift which you are given
That it is you who is the one who is seeing
And to just give thanks that you are living
