Believe

 

How do you break it, to a friend

That not believing, is not the end

Letting that Bronze-aged text go

Is the truthful word, that I send

 

By all means believe, in yourself first

If, for spirituality, is what you thirst

But don’t rely on a decrepit old book

That man for 2000 years, has nursed

 

All morality, written down or not

Comes from man, it’s what we’ve got

Even the book from which you quote

Was written by man, and edited a lot

 

So put your faith, in fellow man

Still making it up, as best we can

Changing rules and morals too

In an imperfect world, humanly ran

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a hunger for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and especially mine when you read those from me.
