I believe in

Picture frames

As shelter for memories


I believe in


To hate and war


I believe in

Deafness to

Dumb words


I believe in

Weighing intelligence

Not gravity


I believed in


Until divinity


I believed

In Zeus

Until heresy


I believed in


Until literacy


I believed in


Until trinity


I believed in


Until his butchery


I believed in


Until it became holey


I believed in


Until you showed me

    This is a wonderful, creative poem. There are many thought provoking and interesting ideas behind this. One of my favourites my friend πŸ™‚

      Thank you. It was based on a essay done by college students where they write what they believe in for their first years, so I did my own little poem about it.

        That’s a great idea. I love the references to the different deities and how far the beliefs into/surrounding them go. I think I may find that an hard essay, in still discovering I think. Give me a couple thousand word analysis of a poem though πŸ™‚ it’s a great piece my friend πŸ™‚

        Thanks so much. You should try one something like that. You’re just supposed to say I Believe… and go from there. You can believe in cats, or surfing, or love, or writing poetry or anything. Thanks again for commenting πŸ™‚
