DO YOU BELIEVE?

Do you believe?

Structured and composed is the DNA
Complexity utmost yet so very simple
With absolution deficient in any sway
And merely solidity resides in its ripple

The conviction code of authority
Nonetheless doubtfully it gives
Believing not in but ourselves
We surrender to it while it lives

Arriving in a blanket of the credence secrets
Each are born devoid of overcastted despair
Begins the life belief in these famed seconds
Of this our life that many are calling unfair

As we smile with our hopeful tears
Face this world we earnestly must
While our faith bends habitually
Suspended is our breathing trust

Belief that is hard to find and superior then us
From a dimension thinly veiled and so concealed
Yet faithfully it resides below each of our skins
Only in time of our perishing age it is revealed

Never giving up although in dread
Not even for split seconds we fold
Believing is but our unknown faith
With anticipation the end we uphold

Light and dark are balanced in this equilibrium
And each soon measures itself one day by deeds
Believing to be anything but this superior entity
High on self-worth resides within us in our needs

Alive we trust since we do breathe
Inhaling our comforts and applauds
To continue somehow not giving up
Without basis we consider to be duds

Meanwhile to believe is to be alive in this space
Thinking, judgement, energetic and active in each
Suitable to be anything but a dead lifeless carcass
Is conveyed in another strange message I teach

Yet buds should be more like it, I will say
Hanging onto final strings of ending belief
Blossom to grow emerging like butterflies
Not shameful behind exposed lies and grief

Now, do you believe in the so-called unified belief?
Blind, unknowing what truth first consider to think
Animated we are walking in self-styled existence
Amid faith are born ideas in each brand new blink

Believing is this one cohesive principle
Not the isolated one of the obvious sight
Yet one living deeper then our knowledge
Of this blinding incandescent inner light
