Believe

If I climbed the highest mountain,
Swam across the widest sea,
Possibly would you then,
Begin to believe in me?

If I found the cure to cancer,
Or created a great invention,
Finally would you have faith,
In all my good intentions?

If I stopped the hungry from starving,
And gave strength to all the weak,
Maybe then would you listen,
To all the words I speak?

If you simply made a difference,
In one life or two,
I promise I would be proud,
Because I already believe in you...

I agree with you bluemagnet22! People should keep their comments to themselves if they are mean! Great job! Don't let mean comments stop you from writing. Snookums is probably just jealous of you.

I really liked this poem, it has double meanings! To some it might just be a person you are referring to, but to me I totally see the Lord as the one speaking!

Loved it! Great work!
