Faith


Friend, the world is hard
Countryman, the world is really hard
Brother, the world is very hard
Where problems are stable mountain
In the middle of a long journey

Friend, don't forget problems
That shines the day is greater
Than the rains in a month
But the blessings
Mightier than the the blue blue ocean

Countryman, tell the sons of my father
The womb from which I came from
That I bury the dead alone
Because of my Faith

    Faith can be the saviour of broken spirits and also be used to justify the cold blooded murder of those who share a different view.

    It's a powerful thing. As is your excellent poem. (Report) Reply

    I like the repetition in this poem which, together with its imagery, gives it its power. I wish English was an easier language for a budding poet. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
