True Faith Is Never Replaced - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Live everyday to be bolder.
Why claim to have a faith,
If excuses you can't escape.
But you find time to elaborate,
On kept fears.

And they grow older,
With a doing on bended shoulders.
While praying they go away.
But fears you keep don't fade.

You don't believe,
Like you say you do.
Yet,
You refuse...
To get up and test your faith.

Having less to address to impress,
Is...
A kept fear.

Having less happiness to express,
Is...
A kept fear.

Seeing possessions obsessed go,
Is...
A kept fear.

Having few friends making less dough,
Is...
A kept fear.

Wanting more love but none of it comes,
Is...
A kept fear.

A seeking empathy but having none,
Is...
A kept fear.

And you boo-hoo all alone too,
Is...
A kept fear.

You don't believe,
Like you say you do.
Yet,
You refuse...
To get up and test your faith.

Having less to address to impress,
Is...
A kept fear.

Having less happiness to show expressed,
Is...
A kept fear.

Seeing possessions obsessed up to leave,
Is...
A kept fear.

Having few friends left you believe,
Is...
A kept fear.

Wanting more love but none of it comes,
Is...
A kept fear.

A seeking empathy but none is done,
Is...
A kept fear.

And you boo-hoo all alone to do,
Because you choose your own fears...
With a doing of a kept faith faked.

Live everyday to be a bit bolder,
And not with a faith you fake.
One living everyday to be bolder,
Has true faith not faked.
True faith is never replaced.
Or faked everyday to fade.
