This poem is my approximate description of the process I have been through the last few years, and have finally found my way out of, without losing my precious Faith. Rather finding the joy in it

Crisis of Faith

After so many years og despising humanity

seeking refuge in those few people who dare to open their eyes

seeking refuge in a promise of a future for a better humanity


believing a community to be different, but no group, no community is different from the rest of humanity


learning that we are all corrupt in some way or another

creating problems and tears for eachother

through our selfish thoughts

through not chosing better

through being careless and only following the manistream

through being fanatical and uncompromising in our beliefs


knowing true betrayal and seeing too many friends become fanatically wrong

blindly believing in something that needs truth, honesty and reason to function as the Saviour of Mankind


After all this


Somehow I managed to find a heart in mankind

sparking my unconditional love

for the potential in every human heart and mind


of walking as Gods among the stars

and of being able to love and care like no other creature on earth


This is why I still believe,

despite human frailty,

in God
