“What I believe” demands a commitment
I think I‘m mostly willing to give,
Although of that I’m no longer certain.
My heart is divided; my lust for more
Clings too tightly, strangling my reason.
I struggle with doubts, hedge my opinions,
And second-guess the straight and narrow way.
In ages past, both “holy” and “wholly”
May have shared bonds to a single truth…
But I’m neither saint nor whole today.
