Faith- A Blindfolding Reality

It is knowledge and understanding beyond the seen
and not the mind, losing its charisma.
Laid down unmerited blessings is best imagined,
being qualified is by belief and not a diploma.

It’s unbelievable and strange to the world,
such a road is never short of stigma.
Its carriers are tagged blind and myopic
with neighbours wondering if it’s mental glaucoma.

Truth shoulders its complexities
as reasoning partners with facts,
leaving convictions to serve as reality’s aroma.
But much glory waits such stand,
fueling hope to operate a wide cinema.

The present usually blurs the future
like a child in its pregnant mama.
Sight is limited but understanding runs deep,
without it, one will live but in a conscious coma.

    "Sight is limited, but understanding runs deep." This line explains it as well as it can be explained. One is either deep within or one lacks faith. Good work. Love, daver
