Fear Masquerading as Faith
A truth so powerful as to be worthy of giving up kindness,
is a road so ugly as to close the eyes to beauty.
A life so lost as to see cruelty as joy
is truly fear masquerading as faith.
Faith does not fear change,
it is change itself.
It does not resist becoming,
but finds delight in welcoming the new.
Fear lives in a funhouse with warped out-sized mirrors.
All it sees is a reflection proving itself to itself.
Warped images of fear masquerading as faith,
the masks it sees are the masks it wears.
We die the way we live,
and so live the way we die.
Kindness is always the way,
and faith wears no mask.
