On Keeping Faith - Poem by Bill Grace
How vast the world's despair
Owned far past poet sensitivities
Where the death of hope oft means death
Or the living dead we all have met.
The lesson may be simply this
Love each day as fully as you can
Core requirements not withstanding
And when error comes welcome the education
And recite: 'I will learn, again.'
Pay attention to keep your zipper up
But not too great a caution for what other's think
And practice prayer or other
That helps connect to source
And when the world says:
'There you are.'
You know the greater truth,
And keep faith with the strangeness of your path.
