Faith

What is faith?

 

It is like an underground river,

A strength

That refreshes,

A nourishment

That causes the fruit

Of the drinking plant

To flourish.

 

What is faith?

 

It is like a canvas,

The resilient surface

On which colours

Of free, joyful living

Are brushed

With precise

Abandon.

 

What is faith?

 

It is like emotions,

Needing expression

On face

With hands and feet

Evident

To even the casually

Observant.

 

What is faith?

 

It is the drowning man’s rope,

The hungry man’s sustenance,

The thirsty man’s answer,

The giver’s wealth.

 

What is faith,

But a deliberate belief

In what we cannot prove to others,

But we know for truth

In the heart.
