ISOLATED FAITH
(7/3/17)

they are
angry

confused

frightened

depressed

yet
they attend
church
at every
opportunity

we wonder
what they learn
there

their solution
does not seem
to reside
within those
structures

those rituals

those words

at the bottom
of every soul
is the individual

attempting
to reach God
at the top

there are
no other people
involved

all
that is human
only detracts
from The Divine

perhaps
a long
solitary walk
would suit them
better

a little stroll
through their
darkness

where
the only answer
cannot refrain
from being
revealed

once
the mind
is cleared
of worldly
concerns

once
the temples
are empty
