Heroes Are Hard to Come By

Catholicism was a required course of study
Grades 5 thru 8 in parochial school,
closely examining the history of religion
challenging the mysteries of popular belief
offered by scholars of biblical thought

At university I turned to mysticism
and the sciences of psychology,
to understand the workings of the human mind
and the advancement of self-control
in critical thinking as applied to the real world

Embracing advances in medicine & its uses
the unbelievable turned credible,
recognizing need in a fast-paced society
subjected to scrutiny with a discerning eye,
true heroes take on the appearance of godliness
