Faith Visual Poem by meljoy68 Faith Visual Poem by meljoy68
Faith

As skies above will once again be blue,
So to the clouds o’er head will soon be gone.
The healing sun will shine again anew,
And I will find the strength to carry on.

My empty glass will once again be filled,
My barren table graced with daily bread,
My path will turn to follow where I’m willed,
So that my hungry spirit may be fed.

Eyes wet with falling tears will dry to see
The rainbow that appears after the rain.
For hardships are what make a stronger me,
And true endurance comes from bearing pain.

This too shall pass, for I am not without
The faith to see the light beyond my doubt.



Sometimes, faith is all you have. Without it, life can be a dark and scary place...

I submitted this as just the poem, and have been searching for the right visual to go with it... I think this works.

Thank you so much. Honestly? I have no idea. :) I'm not well-versed in the bible.

I checked, apparently it's not in the bible. It's from a story of king Solomon :)

Lovely, and I'm glad my stock was useful :D
My one little "but" is that the font you used is a bit hard to read because of the various widths and the fact that seen small, the separation is not very good, which makes some letters look like blobs.
Reply
:iconmeljoy68:
meljoy68 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I worried about that... it's hard, when I know what the words are, to see how it might be difficult for someone who doesn't to read it... I'm in the process of updating with a better font! :)

Thank you very much for the feedback. It's appreciated and taken to heart. :aww:
