when faith is lost

the first cost

is the truth

and the spaces

being slurred and stirred by lies

of the enemy

and a sort

of damn inertia

like a turtle or a snail

one can wag it s tail and hide in it s shell

the other is

slow and prone to a painful

death on the sidewalk

within its green slime

so i hope

for each and every person

and place

that the love of God

not be replaced

by angers or malice
