Belief Transcends

Belief transcends the natal form
set in place by fate forlorned
for the jest now at hand
a vision some misunderstand

the outer does not display
congruency with a faith
that identity flows from the whole
with the parts then transposed

when compared to the normative
this outcome of derivatives
a new identity is expressed
now that oneness has been addressed

personhood at last declared
even though the pundits glare
at a faith that’s absolute
when belief defines a truth.
