then probably

belief
not shaken
with the profession of words
made with beautiful structures
eloquent
reflective

but not getting there
still stranded
only well worded

if it stands probing questions
with calm inspection
and grace filled conversation
and absorbs hate filled arguments
or those that simply want your fist
to dance in a fight
with a compassionate bent
then probably belief is sure

or when belief becomes
an embodied existence
where conceptual ideas
become action
then probably belief is sure

or when all goes wrong
and the sky seems to mirror your sorrow
yet you still hold true
to that foundational construct
and don’t waver
regardless
then probably belief is sure

Belief that is not tested is not belief but assumptions you think you hold on to but not.
