A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald

A study of religion.

Pray to heaven,

Forsake a hell,

Making noises,

A man to tell,

A hollow dome, 

A marble altar,

Smoking incense,

Amen to falter.

The poem itself was great, the last lines clinched it. I like the darkness conveyed in your writes. Well thought out and well written. -S

I can relate to this, seems that every time I really try to change I just say, “Amen to falter.”

Great Write!
