Revelations

and why indeed are they referred to as revelations
when all their meanings remain hidden
under layers of verses
disguised as poetry with a purpose

and why indeed were they revealed for all mankind
while the common worshipper
relies on scholars to sift through
yet continue to argue on what is true

and why do we grip the word in our fist
letting its significance slip away like grains of sand

why indeed do the few hoard all knowledge
when it is the sharing that enhances it

and like withered leaves
the truth is distorted
and we cry for yet another revelation
a shameless mockery of His word

  1. Greetings,

    This very wonderful poem speaks, to this person, about the inherence of revelation in a real locus. According to me, those who hoard find themselves with counterfeit gold.

    Thank goodness for those who point to the real spigot. Renew the distorted, and Truth shines!

    Wonderful poem. Thank you for it.

    All good wishes,

    robert
