Queries and Theories


I’m quasi-religious, but my faith is sure.
And quitting I’m not, for I pray to endure.
But rites and routines
Make pilgrims machines
And likely, no evil may cure.

My queries continue, but answers exist.
I pound and I pray and I even insist.
But welcomed am I
With a patient reply,
For He’s never my questions dismissed.

  1. I am in AWE, it is an absolutely deep, spiritual, respectful poem and I discovered through it that I too am QUASI RELIGIOUS , I am trying to find a favorite line, but the entire thing is so cohesive and intertwined. You should send that to every spiritual and religious center/magazine publication, I bet you will win a prize I so love to find treasures and on Easter Saturday THIS was truly heaven sent ... the poem may be you and yet you described ME ! #AtoZchallenge ☮Peace ☮ ღ ONE ℒℴνℯ ღ ☼ Light ☼ visiting from Would love to have you as a guest when challenge is over YOU are AMAZING!!!!
