When One Takes a Closer Look (6/19/2022)

The space is vast, but no one comes forward. No one stands out.

The state of affairs of this world is not what one thinks.

On the surface, some people look like saints.

But, when one takes a closer look,

not a single sign of true faith can be seen in any of them.
