Faith

Faith

Born
of a need
to understand
our origins.

The product
of vivid imaginations
and stirring storytelling.

Hijacked by kings,
and popes,
poets
and fanatics.

Sculpted
over history and time
into
indisputable, unquestionable,
definitive, watertight
truths.

A belief worthy of
death,
torture, mockery,
persecution,
martyrdom.
killing even.

There is
only one true religion,
one abiding faith.
The rest
are charlatans,
fakes.

Ask any supporter
of Liverpool F.C.

  1. It’s true we all have our own religions. Mine involves holding a mug of some hot beverage (usually tea, coffee or cocoa) and sipping luxuriously… especially with a little something sweet to eat on the side.
