FROM BELIEF TO CONVICTION
It’s one thing to believe, another yet
To be convinced by evidence and proof,
When all the normal standards have been met
That verify veracity and truth.
Until such time, one only may suppose
That something that’s alleged is truly so
As observation and clear thought disclose,
Just where the best investigators go.
Yet there are some beliefs that never may
Be subject to such skeptic scrutiny
Since they transcend the world of everyday
And enter a new realm: Eternity.
Conviction that Eternity is real
Is something one can’t think but only feel.
