The Pool

a spiritual sin some say
sincerity creasing their
knowledgeable foreheads
crucifixes clasped rosaries
clutched

they don’t realize it’s
more of a slip like bare
feet on damp moss a
loss of footing a gentle
off  kiltering

weeble wobbling over the
edge a dip or a dive it’s
pretty much the same when
one treads water in the
pool of despair

a spiritual bath I say
sincerity creasing my
unknowledgeable forehead
fingers clasped heart
clutched

    I am not sure it can be said any better than that.

    Awesome post!
