Faith

Jan 2017    

Faith is the firstfruit

of trust

conceived in the matrix

from the seed

of enduring Truth

and time-tried Knowledge.

 

Faith is a blind man

leaping from an inferno

into waiting arms below.

 

Faith is a sightless bat

negotiating pillars

from heard echoes

reverberating from hard surfaces.

 

Faith is the hand clasp of a child

stumbling along

a murky alley.

 

Faith is a woman

believing in fidelity

when her man

walks down the streets of allure.

 

Faith is a father

at the terminal

waving off a child

as she flies

into a strange land.

 

May the Father

increase the measure of our faith

As we step each day

Into the dark valley of uncertainty.

 

Dr Oliver Seet –

is a member of Wesley Methodist Church and a Board Director of the Metropolitan YMCA.
