The Secret Place

Ambition, hatred, fear—the dreams of night—
Aggression, lawlessness, the deed uncouth,
Are as the darkness swiftly taking flight
Before the bright, illuminating truth
"Why stand aghast at nothingness?"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page 563. At these
Vague shapes of evil? They shall be dispelled
At day's irradiant coming, when disease,
With fear and hatred, sorrow, death, is quelled.
Negations have no entity or place,
And at Truth's coming vanish without trace.

Love, joy, and peace, established and enshrined
On Truth's eternal rock, secure and strong,
Are safe, inviolate from hate and wrong,
Serene, enthroned in omnipresent Mind.
