Faith

Seeking

Truth  revealed

Darkness and light

Intertwined denied

Smoke and mirrors parlor games

Machiavellian players

Keep their pawns in a fog covered veil

Moving them like puppets on thin strings

Making the rules as they’re breaking them

And cuts the strings that hold them

With a swish of their hand

The veil is parted

Tables are turned

Free the hands

Of one
