To believe or not believe
a chasm suddenly opens out
within a personality
when belief becomes a doubt
and we, mere animals
mired beneath the mind
of the ground of base
and basic human nature

Do you believe in deity
or the stars that shine within the sky
and even more importantly
can you find it in your heart
to rekindle your belief in love?

Pivotal, the self we are
beneath and yet encompassing
the way we wish and hope to be
while lost within the in-between
of man-made mind's reactions

Right here, between the roles we play
and who we really are
and even in between
the you of you and I of I
lies love . . .
