Pagan Faith

Many gods and goddesses may exist, 
however, each one only portrays 
the many personalities of one wholly 
being when combined.
Our Mother cherishes us all but still
our inane habits inhibit the possibility
of a peaceful planet.
We take everything for granted not thinking
of the consequences of our many selfish actions.
Our Mother exists in everything we see and do,
still life displays a certain essence to cause
destruction, extinction or simply evolution.
Each of us behold the ability to change but our
stubbornness creates a false image of security,
wrapping us all in a thick layer of cotton-wool.
Pagan faith is a way of becoming one with
nature enabling us to see how precious life is.
Sadly, our subconscious makes us blind to the
fragmented forms of how life behaves; life can 
suddenly become dark and flooded with fear
and melancholy making us see life in a 
different light making many bitter and scarred.
Nature is the centre of pagan faith thus it is
seen as precious and is thus treasured and 
deeply appreciated by all followers.
Many of us learn life’s most important 
lesson at a turning point in our lives: 
life can be altered in a blink of an eye, 
like day surrendering to the night 
setting free the all seeing eye, it 
provides the only light through the darkness.
As inevitable as it may be, darkness
has to submit to light releasing the
slumbering spirits of life.

    a marvelous write about this faith,, I have found that all faiths are so similar and can be good or bad,,,any faith does not make someone good alone....thoughsome may disagree and they have that right,, I have seen in the our past history that evil can have faith, or say they do and commit atrocities,,anyway,,,I will read you more,,,Blessings..Cecil

    Thank you, Leighann. It is nice to see a clear assertion of belief and acceptance of the muddled grey of human behavior in the same poem. I like the last line--- darkness has to submit to the light in the end. Nice work. Nykki
