Article of Faith
Perhaps I am in need of absolution?
Forgiveness for singing these old, silly songs,
poems considered by some as senseless.
Ones that seem harsh, just this side
of scornful, while others are serene,
like an infant drifting in milky dreams.
Yet, each one counts as some part of me.
Sign posts marking crossroads, a turning
to left or right on entering new pathways.
Only brushing lightly at certain corners,
while freely diving deeply into others.
Cries of both blessings and sorrows.
Would a loving Deity smite me for following
this path, for nurturing self from this plate
others might find lacking in substance?
No. I don’t believe so.

Notes: I have been working for what seems forever, on my Poetic Memoir. Over the past few weeks I’ve been seeing what I hope is the finish line. These two word lists wouldn’t seem to go in any other direction.
