LATE BLOOMS: Creative Truth

A belief repeated
repeatedly repeated
over and over reiterated
again and again restated

erases unbelief
drowns out disbelief
becomes a truth believed
a truth to be lived.

It matters not
whether it’s true truth,
distorted truth,
or even untruth.

It is enough
it is by believers
believed and
repeatedly repeated.
