A Point of Faith

My life has very little religiosity

But my soul is rich with curiosity

Although I believe in humanity

The daily news tests my sanity

The world is wildly pain afflicted

Sadly, most of it is self-inflicted

In darkness we search for the right

Treading water adrift in moonlight

Safety we want, order we need

Clutching faith we won’t concede

Swimming in search of compass north

Picking words to fuel our journey forth

Meaning we draw to fit our intention

Sword in hand, ready for intervention

Kindness has a value not on the Dow

As neighbors we reap what we plow

When the sabbath turns a new day

My conviction will not fade away
