Faith

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
