M. Fennell


Outwardly I stand my ground

While inside

I tremble to my knees


As the depressing darkness reappears

I am continually awed with fear

and yet I light a fire for all to see


I stay and I play and I chip away

at the apathy and hate


But then why should I

for the task is too great

for a simple man like me


I must have faith - my time is not a waste

and it is never to late

for hearts to see


Faith in love is all that I have

and with my faith in God and the goodness of man

I have the spirit and strength to proceed
