It's All In Good Faith

It's All In Good Faith

A Poem by Meh
"

For anyone who said I couldn't be a writer, this one's for you.

"

 

Say what I can instead of what I couldn’t.
Don’t tell me what I can’t and possibly shouldn’t.
Don’t tell me those lies about what’s not real
because whatever I can do, I can feel.
Tell me the truth through the lies,
and why do I continue to believe even if I don’t use my eyes?
It’s all in good faith—the air that I breathe,
I cannot see, but I take heart to believe.
Faith is believing in things other people couldn’t,
and I choose to have faith in what they say I shouldn’t.
Whether it’s God, the truth, bacteria, or the air,
I will continue to believe even if I can’t see if it’s really there.
For it’s an infinite, definite, unfailing state:
If you believe it will work out, it’s all in good faith.

Author's Note

Meh
Faith (noun, verb): to have belive if something, espically if it is unknown or unseen; to trust in a person, place, thing, or idea [i.e.: "have faith in me; "(it's) all in good faith."]

As usual, please comment, criticize, question, review,-- whatever you want to do. Your reviews help me become a better writer, and I highly appreciate that. Thank you. :)

But P.S... I'm not the best at either grammar or punctuation (and sometimes, spelling). But that's what poetry is about, right? Doing whatever the heck you want to do with words and language and not having to worry that your English teacher will see your work and come after you, screaming with a red pen about how many times you've made the same mistake on a midterm paper.

Anyways... back to the topic...

And lastly, I shall quote from the highly inspirational movie (which I SERIOUSLY recommend you should watch), "Homeless In Harvard:"

"When there's nothing left to believe in, believe in yourself."

Kinda says it all, doesn't it???

I have had hundreds of "reviewers" criticize my work for not adhering to the rules of poetry. There are indeed rules but the best writers break them.

If you want to be published by a publishing house or paid for your work, you have to learn grammar, almost have to adhere to the rules. Or you can be like me and be published for free and wait till you're in your 40's to have your first book published. :-) I chose to write my way and wouldn't have been able to write any other way. Stick to what feels right to you.
