Listen

A question of faith,
matter of time, physical being,
thoughts denied.
Whole-hearted wonder,
a worthwhile purpose not
always apparent. Moral or myth.
Humanity’s survival
a gift in kind. We are all seeking
answers, comfort, and
kinship within the spiritual realm.
Even those of us who deny
the existence of a higher power
find a source of contentment.
Eventually. Faith
remains a question, it must,
for daily we count on too much,
and have little else
to rely on. Our beliefs may falter,
or we within them. Examination
comes when you least expect,
care for the soul is
repeatedly neglected. Interpretation
of the self rarely leads to resolution.
We continue asking, seeking,
wanting and being. Listen.
Live your question.
