    My faith guarantees me
    And eventual silver lining.
    Yet sometimes I don't believe faith.
    Sometimes I can't see a better way.
    There are times when it rains
    Though just a drizzle, a light sprinkle,
    Yet each drop wears away- eroding my heart,
    My soul, ever so slowly.
    So slow it's almost beyond notice.
    Still I recognize.

    Skies clear up, rain stops
    Now I'm looking for my
    Beacon of hope in the clouds.
    There, up high
    Amongst the stars
    Deep into space
    As far
    As my perception will allow,
    I search.

    Still I can't make out
    Where this “silver lining” lies.
    Maybe faith has lied.
    Tears run down my face, I wipe
    Them away, ashamed to cry. (I'm a male, am I allowed to?)
    No (and I don't want to honestly)

    So I shut my eyes to conceal tears
    And to find consolation, security for all my fears.
    Behind my eyelids I find nothing, but black pitch.
    But then suddenly I could have swore I saw this
    Glimmer of white light.
    This warmth through my whole being.
    I realized suddenly
    Hope was what I saw- felt.
    It lingered for a moment, and then retreated.
    I felt it melt…

    It returned to the dark.
    Became one with it,
    Became it. ​

    That silver lining can be difficult to see clearly, sometimes we have to truly open our eyes and allow ourselves to find it. Wonderfully posed.

    You must never lose sight of that hope, of that silver lining, cuz sometims its all we have left. Keep the faith. It'll come through for you.

    Hi iwannable
    Very awesome poem Poet
    It had me in thoughts
    About the silver lining
    keeping faith
    Skies clear up, rain stops
    Now I'm looking for my
    Beacon of hope in the clouds.
    There, up high
    Amongst the stars
    Deep into space
    As far
    As my perception will allow,
    I search.

    Wonderful read :)

    Peace
