We base all  our vital decisions
futures, families and employment
when in fact they represent realities
hidden futures we cannot foresee

Choosing Faith we are hesitant- uncertain
where are we going- what lies ahead?
barely understanding our first cautious steps
people linger and wait anticipating our fall

Are you afraid to live by Faith?
well--welcome to the club
be bold, forsaking nearsightedness
fearful first steps of Faith will bring accomplishment

“We live by Faith, not by sight”--2 Corinthians 5:7

    Always have a lot to say, my dear. There is too much we don't know so it seems rather silly to live by sight alone (you can see oxygen, can you? But yet we know it's there keeping us alive)... awesome piece!

    Nice words of wisdom from St. Paul. Que sera sera. The future's not ours to see. Good write.

    Good poem indeed. We cannot predict what will occur tomorrow, but faith is a positive method to go on.
