I Do Believe

Standing on the edge of forevermore.
Trying to see what lies ahead.
Do I have enough time for making plans.
Or should I just wait for the inevitable end.

I do not believe in nevermore.
I do not believe it's the end when you're dead.
I do believe that all religion is a scam.
I do believe in God and in God I do depend.

Through all my years of living I've seen every side of life.
The good, the bad, the happy, the sad have all enriched my soul.
When I see all of the things in my life that I've done.
I have to conclude that God has shined His blessings down upon me.

I do not believe that every human being has to conform and be alike.
I do not believe that the human race is the greatest thing that the universe has to show.
I do believe that humankind can find peace on Earth under the Sun.
I do believe that if every single person on the face of this Earth
were to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, what a wonderful world it would be.
