ogunleye kayode peter

(20th April 1988 / Nigeria)


People call it a believe
Some call it tolerance
But faith justified a person
By faith we are sanctified
And experience joy
By faith we became
Free from condemnation
Faith gives us assurance and fulfillment
Cos faith without work is dead
Live by faith
Walk by faith
Continue in faith
Do everything by faith
Grow in faith
Demonstrate faith by good works
Combine faith with hope and love.

    Questioning poetry, and believing, and faith,
    and fate as if (The Lord) could fail
    to love... trying to find the perfect tense
    the right line, the language and punctuation,
    and your eye that has peripheral limits
    all may be a poem; how many times
    do we feel the need to write one; ... (good poems) ...
    when one is continually written to us
    without any need for the customized trappings.

    The true meaning of Faith could not have been written better than in this poem. It excels. It abounds with love. Well done.

    combine faith with love it only matters otherwise it seems that blind faith still leads to darkness sometimes. The poet made a beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    'Demonstrate faith by good works
    Combine faith with hope and love.' a faithful poem spreading pollens of faith. And my faith is on that. (Report) Reply

    Faith is the moving cause of all action.
    Without faith we loose our attraction.
    Disbelief may be extreme caution
    but sleep prepares us to function.

    Keep the Faith! (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
