A Beckon For Truth
Fundamentally we cannot change who we are at our core.
The only true freedom left to us
is our willingness to experience the vast array life has to offer
in the here and now with an open heart.
We can either meld with the darkness
or be a light... a beckon for truth!
Sunlight blinds the eyes of ignorance and discrimination,
so they flee into the shadows.
Faith re-energizes the soul until it shines
and others perceive its light through our words and actions.
Belief is simplicity itself,
but it speaks volumes
on the mind frame, hopes, admissions
and views of society.
Bogeymen exist in the real world,
and they can reach into our hearts and displace love.
It isn't wrong to want to live for the moment
or enjoy life outside the box of conformity;
but remember, evil is the nemeses of good
and evil begets evil.
The soul is like a spiritual song unaffected by time
which cannot alter its tune
and thus, it remains in harmony with life and God.
