“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.”
― Alan Wilson Watts
Faith, the shifting shadow of belief
Sure but elusive wraith
I’ve pursued you
unworthy suitor that I am
only to find you in the hearts of many.
Virgin pure harlot
that I long to hold
yet grasp at you way too tightly
knowing you exist
brings me warmth
even tho you are not mine.
Still I remain open to your charms
and wonder at the ever shifting hues
of your twin, possibilities
Now that is a lusty one indeed
and one that will never leave me.
— G A Rosenberg
