BEYOND BELIEF (2)
Beyond the creeds and dogmas of our faiths
Proclaimed by saints inspired by holy wraiths,
Then followed blindly in idolatry,
Is there some Truth—beyond credulity?
Is there some Truth that shows us how to live
Revealing simply how to love and give
While leading us to marvel at our lives
And work to see the natural world survives?
Such Truth must now appear self-evident,
Sufficient to entice us to relent
From ancient enmity and grinding grief
By offering consolation and relief.
We need more than a sanctified restriction;
We need instead intuitive conviction.
