When the Answer is Wait

on bended knees
comes a lowly soul
in search of hope
knowing the answer 
will not be ‘Yes’

though his quest
in utterances pained
he is ever hopeful 
though the answer
may simply be ‘No’

and his faithfulness 
is grievously tested
he continues ever 
enduring even when 
the answer is ‘Wait’

    Your faith speaks strongly in this piece. You are correct when you speak about faith being grievously tested with the answer is "wait" as patience and faithful endurance is the the harding calling to hear. I applaud this piece.
