Handle with Care

Belief without action
falls impotent, futile.
Action without belief
flutters unfocused,
misses it's mark.

Powerful marriage,
belief and action,
for good or for harm.
easily corrupted,
essential for change.

Enacted belief flew
to the moon, had a dream,
exterminated six million Jews,
keeps talk show hosts shouting,
doesn't give up on any child.

Activated belief, like fire, water
creats, desstroys, kills, gives life.
Consider, doubt, balance, dare.
Check your mirrors, mind heart, soul
before activating belief. Then act.

  1. Victoria, this is a wonderful poem. Strong beliefs can work great good or do great harm and a lot in between.
