Sonnet to our inner prophets

I do not believe John’s Revelation
Projects a lit’ral future time at all.
I never thought Nostradamus’ notions
Were prophecy, though many he’d enthrall.
I do believe th’undaunted human spirit
Is more than capable of knowing truth;
Though not from any other can hear it.
Our hearts provide the necessary proof.
‘Vest faith not in vain and noisome promise,
Nor seek soothsayer’s words, to life apply;
First, turn inward, each to her own conscience,
From which arises hope.  Each soul supplies
That needed hint, the future then to know,
As we, into that destined future go.
