A Faltering Faith
Time draws near, I await my fate,
The fate all mortals must await;
Is God still firmly on his throne,
Or must I make this trip alone?
My dimming faith has gone astray,
On this I think and even pray;
This sordid world of greed and sin,
Has stretched my faith extremely thin, .
Am I alone, do others see
Religion's great diversity;
Eternal wars in faith's own name,
Faith without works must take the blame.
Time's drawing near, but I must wait
To view the face of Heaven's gate;
When, if I see death's final glow
Then I shall know, most surely know.
