    faith is the fibers that
    refuse to unravel in the wind
    the song that keeps playing
    in the cavernous silence
    the heart that stays steady
    in the unflinching stillness
    faith is the candle that
    burns brightly in the darkness
    the flower that
    blooms through the pavement crack
    the courage to believe
    that good is stronger than bad
    faith is the smile
    after failure
    the tallest tree
    in the park
    the ground that doesn't crumble
    after the earthquake
    faith is the
    unpaved road
    it's that
    small voice inside
    it's loving
    Spirit back

    Wow, gempis, you masterfully penned this scribe about faith, still being able to see when we should have been blinded long ago. Props for this.

    faith...that unseen force
    that makes you take a step
    when fear is surrounding your soul...
    faith...the sun that shines...
    during your midnight hour
    the words that seemingly come
    from no where when your speechless...
    the transparent arms that pull you
    out of bed when you want to pull
    the covers over your head...
    faith...keeping you moving until...
    you reach your destination...
    the destination and manifestation
    of the "true you"...the "ultimate you"...
    the you...you we're always meant to be...
    but couldn't be...without faith...



    Loving your flow sister...thanks for touching my spirit...

    I love this here!
    A faith that is so strong
    and grounded. An unseen
    weapon of the soul!
    Wow! Beautiful Gempis!
