Kept Faith Is The Test - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One's kept faith is the test with a letting,
Of those obstacles faced to witness erased.
To then confirm, if wished...
In a testament to one's belief.
And with a doing of this has provided relief.

Tangible proof many have as blessings are bestowed,
To show they need not try to convince to impose.
Or become offended by those who have yet,
Lived a life to experience miracles presented...
With a feeling everyday of a gratefulness to address.

But some 'will' for whatever the reasons to be given,
Express an indifference to defend themselves against,
That which they have not come to comprehend.
Or with a faith claimed to know well and freed of pretense,
Allow with honesty to have it lead as they follow.
