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.

Keeping the faith

Keeping faith

Because you go to church,
you think that God won't search
out your sins, transgressions,
believe that your confessions
will save your soul from Hell.
Not me though. Ah well!
I can be a grumpy sod,
but I'll take my chance with God.
Though I sometimes err a bit,
I am not a hypocrite.
Try my best to do what's right,
even when life turns out shite!
