    I am a giant in a world of dwarfs
    If I were to stand my shadow would shade the many
    If I were to run
    Others dust would be of no consequence
    If I were to speak my voice would carry
    The footprints from my footsteps would require a healthy stride If across them you attempt to glide

    But I am frozen
    I cannot stand
    I know not why
    But I cannot stand
    In my minds eye I can see the path that I must take
    It leads to intrinsic wealth untold
    I abhor these bars that bind my mind and shackle my stride
    Perhaps the keys of faith could unshackle me
    BUT!
    WHERE ARE THEY
    But for a mustard seed
    O' to be a giant

    I love this piece....
    that is what faith is...the true essence
    substance of things hope for...the evidence
    of things not seen......we can be giants in
    anything...when we choose to be...
    it only takes what...
    yes...faith and the size of the mustard seed


    Bravo!
