Questions of Faith

by on September 18, 2017


Faith, you are required of me

for that beyond which I can see,

to justify my thoughts thereof

and grant existence to that whereof

My life has purpose. For it tends

towards a good that all means end,

or Beauty, Truth, or Love perhaps–

if thinkers, prophets do not lapse.

Or maybe Faith I do confuse

with that unmentioned other muse

that just as well from earthly view

does promise what the heavens show:

A better ‘morrow at the dawn

than what before has come and gone.

Are you the same as Hope, I ask

do you present a different task

than living, working for a place

where serenity is on each face?

And, Faith, how are you different than

the urging deep within this man?
