Conscious conscience

Enforced confession,

bypasses the conscience.

~ Kelly Hartland

Faith to be born

I wonder if upon my death

I will be in heaven or hell.

I wonder if I will be myself; or,

I wonder if I will be more.

And then I wonder –

did I ask these same questions

upon my birth?

~ Kelly Hartland

Lipping it

Enforced confession

bypasses the conscience.

~ Kelly Hartland

Freedom from thine own self

Rebelling against myself is the scheme –

I love feeling for opportunities.

~ Kelly Hartland 

Transparent Believer

For a believer

to represent God’s love

to another,

they first must have had

a taste of God’s love for themselves;

any other expression

is a form of guilt

and a source of pain.
