From where do we come from?
And at death, where do we go?
These are the questions in life
That we all want to know
Is there a God out there? We ask
At times of suffering and woe
How can he let these things happen to us
If he truly loves us so?
Unconditional love is the key
To unlock the mysteries of time
God loves us unconditionally
No matter what our crime
We have free will to do what we like
We decide how we want to live
We can do no wrong in God’s eyes
There is no sin that God won’t forgive
This is very difficult for most to understand
It doesn’t fit in with what we have been told
We’re taught that God is to be feared – so don’t sin
Do as they say, your life has to fit the mould
But we are all individuals
Our lives aren’t supposed to be the same
What’s good for one person might not be for another
And nobody is to blame
If we could just learn to love as God
Unconditionally to all
We would know the answers to life and death
The Veil To All Knowledge would fall

About This Poem
This was one of my earlier poems and although it is not using a ‘Conversations With God’ (Neale Donald Walsch) quote I can see now that it was based on the teachings from these books. The idea that God sees no wrong-doing was new to me at that time, and writing about it helped me to absorb the teaching.
I had written the above paragraph and then thought I’d check my database to see how early the poem was, and how it fitted in with my Conversations With God poems. This was my second poem intentionally written without a specific event to prompt it, and I was surprised to find (although I shouldn’t have been really) that it was written the day before my first Conversations With God quote poems!
