Faithless Labels

Faithless Labels

It’s not ours to criticize
Judge or legislate
Another human being’s anguished
Suffering
Or misfortune paid in full

It’s only ours to assist
In lessening or removing it
By the grace
Of the source
Of all mercy and forgiveness

We all know about the sunshine
In the heart of the hurricane,
The fountain of the inner eye
The inner stillness within the typhoon

We resurrect again
Unto completeness
The inner sanctuary
In case you missed it
It’s the same old truth
Adorned in modern myths and fables

As the unrolled dice lie on the tables
There is so much we’re unaware of
We have to suffer
If we want to sing the body electric
In gratitude amidst
All of our foolish pride
And faithless labels
