Believe

I didn't think
I could believe in Him
How could I?
How could he exist
With all the pain I felt
Hate
Anger
Prejudice
Bringing down
Such loving
Dignified people
My friends
Myself
And thousands of my family
Dying
Just trying to find love
Love the righteous
Wouldn't allow
No
He just couldn't be
I had seen too much
I had felt too much
I had cried too many times
To possibly
Believe
But
The righteous are wrong
I am loved
I am dignified
And finally
Without a doubt
I can believe
