Poet Bio

Through Him,
I am a living being.
Through His Love,
I am but an orphan.
Through His Mercy;
My heart is circumcised,
My conscience is cleansed.
I require neither statute books
Nor the Ten Commandments.
Law is for the worldly
And, certainly, not for me.
I need no documented reminders
Of The Lord’s requirements of me,
His Grace is sufficient.

Yes, through Him,
Some are believers.
However, truth be told;
Nihilists, too, are believers,
They believe their unbelief.
Above all, through Him,
I live in tested faith.
Untested faith is not faith
As an examined life is not
Worth living for Socrates.
