Faith Poem by Walterrean Salley


Rating: 4.9

I rely on my faith each day
To walk this pernicious way
And "what a journey, " I must say

There's been valleys and some hills
To make the journey less a thrill
But I am determined still.

Battling both day and night
With nary a clear end in sight,
Should I relinquish such a fight?

No.I must by the firmest will
With every breath keep fighting still
And having faith in God until.

For someone who is more agnostic then a believer this taps in slightly to my desire to want to believe, some make faith look dangerous but you make it look innocent and pure. We all need guidance and a voice you make it seem easy. Thank you for sharing
