The milieu of voices chanting, crooning a berceuse
to the tune of times tempo,
arranging the minutes to match
the movement of moments.
The epoch’s clock clicking through humankind’s existential crisis
to the wavering of wandering sonatas
mixed with the steady churning
of realities rap.
Imploding auras of intergalactic space and mythical mysteries
defined through the lens of astronomical interpretation,
while nirvana’s winds whisper meaning
into the unsettling reality of nothing.
Then, the earth-shattering quake of pessimistic skepticism
necessitates a revival of conviction,
hopelessness encased in bullet-proof glass
the appeal of nihilism’s listless lure.
Can the inscrutability of the inevitable, truly
explain a mortal’s demise?
Can our agnostic ambiguities ward off
the terrors of our self-destructive delusions?
No, only the simplicity of faith
can alleviate humanity’s heartbreak.
When the meaning of mellifluous melodies
fills the fractured world with the allure of
celestial conceivability, the unexplainable
existence of earth’s wonders
tests the trueness of sophisticated sophism.
Atheistic antagonism floods scholarly minds with educated bias,
but, sincere belief is a choice to accept the timelessness
of truth in the incertitude of sentience,
while sifting through the questioning
confusions of conscience.
Planetary motions swimming through the subtle
intricacies of the solar system, the birth of civilization, existence. . .
unexplainable enigmas, mysterious puzzles,
our fickle minds seek to interlock faith and reason
with religious vacillation and evolutionary leanings. . .
But few ask,
why the hypotheses of modern scientists and philosophers reign supreme above
antiquities records, plausible evidence, and religious theories?
Why hostility against Christianity is the status quo
of the educated elite?
For certain, rationality is intrinsically dependent on belief
and belief depends on rationale,
But, when did belief become the scoffing
block of the intellectual?
When did Christ become
a stuttered guffaw in the halls
of education, government, and civil society?
Are we willing to silence our pious credos
to bow at the feet of partisanship?
Do we unwittingly
embrace the barren postmodern creed
because we fear to speak?
