Faith

Seeking

Truth  revealed

Darkness and light

Intertwined denied

By manipulators

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 

Until one player finds the blade

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
