Without Faith

(Given current world events and recent tragedies, a repost) 


Staring into the face of chaos

and what we can only perceive to be

irrational adversity,

It’s not hard to stumble into

a crisis of faith.

Looking out into the beauty and

the vastness of the mighty blue

ocean I wonder if an exploration of inner faith

is in order.

Not to seek answers about a specific

“Almighty” in an organized faith,

But an abstract seeking of spirituality

within,  on the inside.

It seems everything we lay eyes on

screams dramatic life-and-death conflict,

turning it into florid imagery,

bringing the ugly and only the ugly

to the screens that surround us.

Is it any wonder then, that

our fires to adapt ourselves to

anything good

eventually blow out?

These visions are water

on our candle flame,

dampening our spirits,

drowning our hopes,

putting cracks in our faiths.

Without faith there is no way

to make it through this journey.

The exploration must begin

for the candle to burn bright

within us once again.
