Belief And Unbelief - Poem by Isam Hussain

Sceptics say God is an illusion,
a figment of human imagination,
a sure sign of self-delusion;
they deride the contradiction
that pervades our diction
as we speak of our conviction.

Sceptics make accusations,
hastily raise objections,
they sow the seed of confusion;
weave a web of deception
to avoid giving us their solution
to the mystery of Life and Creation.

They present their case plausibly,
quoting Hawking and Darwin readily:
the Big Bang is the origin of Creation,
and Life is rooted in Evolution;
they urge us to abandon self-delusion
and embrace their rational solution.

Theories may help us to explain
how things evolve and generate;
they deal with processes in the main,
and show how things originate;
but the Origin of all origins, they admit,
is not within their knowledge or remit.

We offer sceptics this Origin as God:
a Principle of unknown nature or name,
a Reality grasped by the mind,
a Truth known only by love.
This is the One we seek to know as God,
life's companion and faithful friend.
