Neither Blindly, Nor in Fear
True faith walks on without its eyes
bound within in a blinding cloth,
baptized by experience
subordinate to no one sense
accepting not just what was said,
instead affirmed by wisdom owned.
It faces questions pressed against
everything it takes for truth.
Whatever fails to validate
gives no cause to vacillate
or, when a point remains obscured,
no urge emerges to distrust
because perception has a say
all within a worldly day
and time may never come to serve
some solace when a mystery
topples walls and columns broke.
Faith strides calmly through the smoke,
no mouse made meek by fictive fright
but lionhearted, roaring Light.
