Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

the River between

the River between


Once you’ve forded the River,

arrived safely on the other side,

your perspective shifts,

your truths change,

and suddenly you’re a philosopher

to all you believe should follow

in your steps.


But, from where I am standing,

the River still looks dangerously wide,

the current too strong,

the water too deep,

and I will never learn to swim

on your faith alone.
