|Every garden needs diversity,
As grace and function both require it.
So ought gardeners desire it
To make a rich and robust harmony.
Every faith needs faiths that it might be
Resistant to the skeptics who surround it,
Pleased to have believers all around it -
Although segmented, a community.
So is life impoverished by a sameness
Self-imposed to ward off painful change,
Often through a fear that faith be lost.
Very little that one does is blameless.
Each embrace is not without its cost,
Redeemed by love, to which no soul is strange.
