Tested Faith

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Led to believe
One amoungst them
Was beneath.
For years this perception,
Was fed and conceived.
The followers were blinded
By the one deceiving them to the ledge.
With vows they pledged to honor him...
And he took them to the edge.

They had no wings to fly.
He did not help them...
Or want them to try.
'With me you do not need them! '
They did not know he lied!

The one believed beneath them,
Although shunned and ostracized...
Explored his flights from different heights.
And did this as days went by.
Until he mastered with abilities that grew.
Soaring past those who thought they knew him...
Standing on the edge.
With no understanding where that led them!
They had fears...
No one taught them to release.

    Its very beautiful Lawrence, and its very meaningful....because by the hand of God...we dont need to fly to reach and to explore just open our heart to god, and give all burden to him..
    take you for sharing....
