Faith


I know there is evil.
It crouches in the dark,with a terrible patience.
'Till the scent of innocence fills it's nostrils,
and opportunity draws it from it's lair.

I know there are Demons.
They understand our weakness,
and tempt us from desire with feigned compassion.

I know there is pain,and loss,and injustice.
By virtue of having been up and down upon the Earth,
and walking to and fro' in it.

I know there are Angels.
That illuminate the darkness,
sustain our haggard spirits,
and retrieve us from icy waters.

There are always Angels..

Oh ya, I don't buy any religion that says animals can't get in somewhere. I think many animals are angels.

babs-I just think that if the thief on the cross can be redeemed,(as well he should),then ruby certainly deserves an eternity of comfy shingled doghouses,and wiley rabbits to chase...
