I believe therefore I live

ancient words of scripture
more modern words of man
the conflict between the heart
and the will to stand

ancient words of trust
of submission to God
modern words of man,
“I think; therefore I am.”

I believe; therefore I live
I will have life;
the true way to heaven
at the end of this life

new poem, November 9, 2013
“I believe therefore I live”
rejecting Rene DeCartes’
famous quote,
“I think; therefore I am”,
which I formerly ascribed to
before I came to understand
the difference between grace and works
