Poem of FAITH*


Alone but not lonely
Cliche indeed
Though so accurately
It describes me
You seem
Not merely tired
But weary
The unanswered lies within you
Not quite identified
I listen anyway
And smile
While you reveal
The tiniest bits of yourself
Studying your profile
In the firelight
Perceiving at last
Though not alone
You are ever, ever so lonely

*Friendship According to Impertinent Harry. I have recently come to realize that doubt is an important component of any sort of faith. Doubt brings questions, that when answered, illuminate faith. And that enlightenment, boys and girls, can only be good.
