Two types of water meant to quench men's thirst;
The first is wet and clear, with swirling flow
from every stream and spring. The single worst
abuse of fate comes when men think they know
that surface truths explain all earthly acts.
The "Living Waters", that the Scriptures say
will change one's eyes to see beyond mere facts,
is metaphorical. The rigid way
religions twist and maul these concepts meant
for higher mind, is damnable. A state
of grace, intimately resident
in each of us, exists profound and great.
The thirst for truth transcends all Dogma's lore.
Fresh marvels wait beyond Truth's sacred door
