In Good Faith

God, my love intoxicate

though prayers at alters falsely lie,

They breathe, They wish, They pray: to eradicate.

 

A swallows song will always cry

when a dove plumets, its unjust descent,

Indignat swallow's cry, will never die.

 

Sway, Sway, Sway

Beneath the tree canopy, lovers tryst,

Hope. Must entangle us all the way.

 

Oh, "Heart of Darkness" please forego,

Sweet Pain, do please, pass me by,

Let the seed of hate not be sewn

 

We have enough faith to hate;

Not enough to forgive our fate.
