Faith as I see it

Faith as I see it

A Poem by LauraRenee

Faith has no limits.

Reaching for the stars,

Never attaining.

As you grasp,

As you plead to see what’s there.

You won’t.

You never will.

 

You try to see the “light at the end of the tunnel”,

But why?

Is there truly a reason?

Is there something there that can save this world?

As you watch the evil crawl,

Slither,

Hiss.

It seems like no one is there.

No one protecting us.

 

But during the calm of the day,

As it seems the world is at rest,

You see the beauty of the world

And can’t help but think

Yes there is a God.

You may never see him.

You may doubt him,

But he is there.

He is watching.

He is waiting.

His day will come.

You've given me pause to think on my own beliefs and whether or not there may be a difference between belief and Faith. Wonderful piece!

This really captured the kind of wavering faith people have throgh good and bad times. I was glad it ended on a happier note, and that the conclusion was that there is a god. As something of an existentialist, but someone who never says never and is open to any ideas, this made me reconsider my own doubts. After all, I too see the beauty of the world and think "There must be a god somewhere". I think most people can relate to the feelings of this poem, whether religious, or not, Christian or not, etc. Nice write and thanks for the RR.

Seriously, this gave me goosebumps. So true. We can only be as strong as our faith. Thanks for writing this one. It truly made me reconsider how faithful I have been. Cheers :)

A powerful and positive poem. We need to have faith and hope to survive in a life. I believe we need to slow down. Talk to friends and find places to rest and think. Hope and belief can fade away when the world is in control. Need time to prayer and be with family/friends. I like the ending to the outstanding poem. Thank you.
