Since Knowing’s not enough for most, Belief
Fills in the gap with spiritual relief.
For all that savvy science can provide,
Most need a God in whom they can confide
And in whose providential power they
Can trust to guide them on their journey’s way,
In whose protective love and care they find
Balm for the heart and solace for the mind.
Some others, though, more independent souls,
Autonomous, with self-selected goals,
Deny there’s guidance in the sky, and go
Alone or with companions here below.
     Whose way is true, who fares the best depends
     In every case on how each story ends.
