Blasphemy & Sanctity

Blasphemy & Sanctity

The Blasphemy of present times
Considered Sacred in future climes
Whereas what's legit now
Will bring demerit later.

Balance is a byproduct
Of naturally opposing forces
Synthesising polar extremes
Alongside overarching themes.

Similarly, language is a malleable substance
Subject to the vicissitudes of cultural interaction.
Phrases come in and go out of style like there's no tomorrow
Intellectually bankrupt yet with ideas left to borrow.

Now God is naught but an outmoded concept
An atavistic term from a past most don't accept.
New ways must be found to speak about Spirit
Forget what you've been told and dare to be bold.

Listen closely for coded inspiration
Our Animus informs us if we rise to the occasion.
An inner sound summons saints mid ancient desert
To vanquish personal demons; transmuted by their effort!
