Abiding Faith

by Just2Write

So boundless is life's mystery
of how we came to be;
So infinite the majesty
of things we cannot see.

We've reached to heaven for a sign
with answers still unknown.
Our store must lie with grace divine
on pathways we've been shown.

In sanctity we've placed our care,
and in that hope believed,
that truth resides in glory where
each thing was first conceived.

The light of life, in part shall be
a dawn for hope and grace;
but when we pass, we then shall see
faith's splendour face to face.

Third place finish.

All people hope for better things. A better life, a better understanding of the infinite hows and whys of what we are. Each person, and in turn each civilization is aware that there are things at work that they do not understand, and although it has been tried many times, it has not been explained. I respect all creeds and faiths that share a common awe of the unfathomable powers of goodness, and faith is all that we have in hopes of understanding this marvellous thing called existence.

This poem is in Ballad Meter (alternating iambic tetrameter and iambic trimeter)
That's 4 iambs alternating with 3 iambs.
Yes, you can sing them.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
