Faith is not to be governed
by the vile will of you humans.
It is the very pulse of your soul.
The very core of the morality
that drives you.

Like you, it may be tainted & controlled
but only by your given gift of free will
can this take place.

Like light, it holds the power to
guide and to free, just as it holds
The potential to fade away into the darkness.

Like a parasite, can it consume you
but only by the filthy hands
of invited demons.

Faith is both gift & privilege
accepted into heart & mind
by the words of a truthful tongue.

In days to come, shall you hear
the drums of war over & around
The plains of existence, and faith shall be tested.

Hold fast for the Way of God
and not only his Holy Word.
Ever tainted by corrupt men.

Roads shall lead on and mislead
To a great many stories
But faith will move you, should you let it.

Faith is this in our hearts and souls...
Faith is the Road which leads to home...
Faith is the governing force of morality...
Faith was the motivation of these words...
Faith was the inspiration behind your creation...
Faith comes and goes from all over. We should have the same faith in God, that he has in us.

Holmes again :)

This was interesting, I mean the way you describe "Faith". It seems in your poem like a certain way of live, or that to have faith is the best guaranty to never loose the right way. You seem to be religious, am I right? ;)
I really admire people who have a so strong believe, I could never have. But I think faith in God is not the only thing right? Also faith in friendship and love, although they can be betrayed...

Ah, if only everyone had faith. This would be quite the nice world.

Great writing and I definitely support the concept. ^^

i'm sure that all people have some kind of faith, but sometimes it's not that strong or their faith is well off. i definitely see your point.

Whoa… Love the insight. Love the forethoughtfulness of it. Love the profoundness of it. Love the evident demonstration of understanding and I love how you speak about faith as if it is something new. WOW! You obviously understand "free will" and you understand that which is greater than our hearts is also leading us to the destination chosen by the words of 'truth' as spoken by our mouths. iLike!
It is a very nice call to sanity, void of vanity…
