253. Sleeping Faith
It was as though my faith had overslept,
However, the feeling of loss would not leave,
And then into my life, the Gods slowly crept.
Many nights in turmoil did I lay there and grieve,
But my mind, like my faith, was just not adept,
I tried my best, but found I could never relieve,
My soul of Their presence, which made me inept.
I sensed Them inside of me, I could feel Them weave,
Slowly I understood Heathenism as a broader concept.
It took far too many years for me eventually to achieve,
But now the old ways of my ancestors, I fully accept !
