[I think the plainest truths might serve us longer]

I think the plainest truths might serve us longer –
together,  better ways we could devise –
ceremonies that might make us stronger –
rid ourselves – at last – of ancient lies!
Surely if we try we’ll find a way
of witnessing both joy and deepest sorrow –
celebrate great light – O Wondrous Day –
free of any falsehoods for tomorrow –
rituals too that help us share elation
at a joyous marriage  or a birth
and the baby’s naming celebration –
rites that speak to us down on this earth!
   Bring solace to a loved ones’ mournful grief
   minus all that counterfeit relief.
