A delicate balance

Posted to Poetry and Politics

There are countless people who would say
God has spoken to them just to impress others
assert authority, claim special status
simply because of ulterior motives.
You can see this going on all the time
one thing is for you to have a first hand genuine vision
the other is to manifacture one and even self convince
for numerous reasons, psychological or political.
The balance between cynicism and true honesty
is a delicate one, I trust Cecil to be one such person
to be able to distinguish between the real and the phony.
