Where Faith Resides - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Struggles to face on a daily basis,
Takes courage.
And a courage to find can not be done,
Unless one creates it.

Courage, motivation and initiative to embrace,
Comes from the same place.
And that place 'inside' to keep it undenied
Is where faith resides.

'Okay.
I'm waiting.'

For what?

'Where you say that place is,
Where faith resides undenied.'

I 'could' give you directions.
Hints and suggestions.

'That's great.
I have a pen.
Would you happen to have some paper? '

But...
Giving it some thought.
What would be the point of me doing that,
If I perceive...
You are on a mission of discovery.
And who knows?
That could be your purpose to serve.
To find for yourself where faith is kept.
Afterall,
Any recommendations I may suggest...
May not be what God wishes you to experience.

'What has God got to do with where faith resides? '

I...uh...
I am certain with time,
You will find the answer to your question.

'People like you are selfish.
And I learned that in church.'
