Parable of Belief

For when ye pray, pray for Belief...  
When Poetry is stronger than fear    
hearts become iron shields, hands    
a barbed lance for the Craft.    
When Poetry is braver than self    
ego recants in the confessional,    
pledges Faithful subservience.    
When Poetry reveals itself tangibly    
it molds beauty from navigable Hearts;    
Tradition survives; History evolves.    
When Poetry manifests, it Forgives    
society’s edict of required allegiance;    
rises Sovereign, a nonaligned Spirit;    
Waxes into the full beauty of Truth,    
unveiling Love's Sacrosanct Light;    
Bestows the Poet a Gift of Belief;    
To become that of the path    
as a city that cannot be hidden,    
neither a candle under a bushel  
but a candlestick; illuminating    
unto all that are in the house.
