BLIND FAITH, DEAD FATE
Oil on canvas
Artist: Nelson E. Ferraris
OPPOSING PRINCIPLES, FAITHS, IDEOLOGIES, BELIEFS AND ISMS….
WHEN ON CROSSROADS PERMEATE RESIDUAL FRICTION
THAT IGNITES ERROR AND UNCONTROLLABLY BECOMES “TERROR”.
OPPOSING FORCES ALWAYS END UP WITH GREAT LOSSES ON BOTH FORCES.
A CLOUDED AND BLURRY FAITH IS NO LESS THAN A DOUBTING FAITH
WHICH IS EQUIVALENT TO A “BLIND FAITH”.
INEVITABLY IT WILL SUCCUMB TO THE PRICE OF DEATH.
DEATH DOESN’T END THAT SIMPLE.
IT IS MORE DREADFUL THAN EXPECTED.
A JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF THE DEAD,
IS RIGHT AHEAD INSIDE OUR HEADS.
By Nelson E. Ferraris
