Following Simplicity


Faith is not stupid

But it has to be gotten


And owned by anyone


I can’t think of an

Authentic tradition

In the world of faith

That does not have

Its scholars


Faith is smart

With aspects of intelligence

That keep generations

Dealing in the finer

Points of interpretation

And practice


This work is nuanced

And important

But faith itself


Can be caught, cared

For, and grown

By anyone


For the blind can see

The deaf can hear

The lame can walk

The path can be traversed by


Whoever each is now

Whoever each is not


In fact, the less the better

To possess

On the way of faith
