I want to give the benefit of the doubt

compassion

but in a world of deceit,

of covetousness, treachery

your gut is more reliable.

Continuing battle between

heart and head and gut.

To look upon man and see the

good is far more difficult

than the empirical evidence

of wrongdoing, of deceit.

Made in His image, yes,

but the image marred

causing great pain to ourselves and others.

How can you raise these dry bones?

These lost in the desert

eating dust and finding pleasure in it.

Until the sand scorches the eyes

and burns the feet.
