The Sword Slicing through Beliefs

A double edged sword
always found Etched in
Religious beliefs

One shiny
polished edge
holds hope
trust and –
allowance of giving one self
over to the
greater God

The same God
that remains
elusive
unfathomable
untouchable
ungraspable

the other
dirty
stained
tainted
edge
withstanding our
age old religious beliefs
holds
doubt

For –
within hope
lies
uncertainty of the
greatest truth
which cannot
be proved into our
material reality

So –
within our beliefs
we must become
friends with doubt
we must
lay with doubt
– alongside hope
we must
be happy with
never knowing for certain
never cementing the fictions that
your belief systems actually
belong with the greater truth

Or
if this dissatisfies you
you could learn to sit
in silence
learning to
throw away meaning and
understand that in
this life where
we add meaning to
all
really
none of it matters
for the time we are here
is short and the
biggest teaching
should be to
unlearn
cultures
traditions
histories
language
consciousness

unlearn this reality
where hope and doubt
have no home
where you can once again be
free
