What is faith?

Some might say it’s hope

Others would call it religion

But for me

Faith is a nice thought

A concept

A passing seed on the wind

Something I reached for in the dark

But my hand closed on nothing

Faith is what I always lacked

Something I longed for on cold nights

Imagine the feeling of knowing

That someone is looking out for you

If you don’t have to imagine it

You’re very lucky

If you can’t, then you’re like me

You’ve cried on your own

Wishing for someone, something

But there was nothing, and no one

No love in these four walls

Just the dust drifting through the air

Mingling with the sound of your pain

So you see

I wish I could have faith

But I don’t.

  1. Depression can be a trickster
    can get us under the ropes
    being down into the darkness
    we forsake having hope.

    Having depression is being locked
    inside you don’t feel free
    maybe you have grabbed faith
    depression won’t let you see.

    So long have been the wait
    your life seems to bleach
    maybe you don’t need to wait
    but instead,
    look for someone to reach.

      1. It’s an amazing way of commenting, I love it! ^ ^ Sure! I definitely plan to make more 😀 I need to re-do the one I did because there’s a spelling mistake – my mind blanked – but I’m feeling more energetic lately so I think I’ll do them over the next few days! ^ ^
        And thank you! I am genuinely doing better, over the past two days my spirits have lifted a lot! ^ ^ 🙂
