Fear And Faith - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One blessed with gifts of special talents.
Creative and originally innovative.
To then claim a faith easily chased away,
By the presence of obstacles, doubts and fears...
Identified to give them power,
Is one who tries to pray away their lies.
With the hope a kept fear and faith,
Will someday be fated to become long lasting mates!

'Why pray?
I mean...
What point are you making if done everyday?
And still acknowledge fears?
Don't you find this a bit hypocritical? '

There are things I want,
I know God doesn't have time to give me.~

'Why can't you just express a gratefulness?
And be thankful for the gifts you have? '

~What makes you think,
I could ever be an atheist?
My faith is much too strong.~
