The Best Thing

To believe or deny,

enlightenment dares

Our lack of acceptance,

a three-legged chair


We feel it and breathe it,

and live it for sure

As minds are left gasping

at something so pure


At this very point

rejection sets in

Our spirit’s attacked,

the reasoning thin


Century upon century

will come and will go

But what can’t be explained

—the best thing to know


(Rosemont Pennsylvania: December, 2020)
