Gift Of Faith - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

No walls can hold so great a gift
no cave or soaring tower
nor bomb nor dynamite can smash
no dungeon quench its power

It breaks the bonds of ignorance
and pierces through thick veils
of deep depression and of dread
through hurricanes prevails

The chains of hate bind harsh and strong
but are no match for it
no shackles and no prison stalls
can hold their own from it

There is no storm or undertow
that it can't overcome
nor moldy tomb or pall of death
that to it won't succumb

No walls can hold so great a gift
no cave or soaring tower
nor bomb nor dynamite can smash
no dungeon quench its power.

Topic(s) of this poem: belief, prison, spiritual, strength
