Of Knowing and Choosing

Existing in glory
Nearing perfection
Since ancient days
An ornate house
Of Holy Wisdom
Faithfully unique
Sacred mysteries
Prophets there
Seek the Truth
Absolute Proof
Of an eternal cosmos
Of an eternal being
Where it is easier
To doubt and disbelieve
People sorrow their fortune
Ignoring their grace
Living for their treasures
Falling upon their knees
Begging for more
Embracing pleasure
Than seeking to know
The truth behind the mercy
The truth of eternity
Willing to sell their souls
For one more taste
Of the cup of the wine
Of life
Rather than suffer
The reality of truth
Where one must confront
And to choose
