Tanka T132

What if people had –
A bit more faith in themselves –
And in each other –
Instead of in religion –
To make things happen in life?

2016 was the year –
I lost patience with my world –
And faith in humanity –
Though not yet in Destiny

Running Poem R052

Having my faith in
America’s collective
Intelligence crushed –
Worse than having my faith in
God and in the Buddha crushed

Why should I believe in you –
If you don’t even
Believe in yourself?
Faith would be the sole reason –
But faith’s a lot to expect!

One Stanza Poem O015

Hell is an effective concept of fear
Conjured to make Christians
Hold their faith dear –
In my mind –
At least – this is clear –
Omniscient God –
Of course – had to be privy –
To knowledge that Heat
Distills pure water from sea
