Monday Poetry

Isn’t it scary?

To put all your eggs into one basket.

If you don’t- you set yourself up for failure,

But if you do, you’re exposed and vulnerable if failure does come.

It would not be so frightening if there

Were a logic to faith. Some indicator of future joy.

Though I suppose if that were the case it would not be faith at all.

I do not think we are destined for a life

Of misery- but does anyone ever think that?

Who sits and down and says, yes I’ll marry you

And birth your children knowing that in twenty years

We’ll sit down with a lawyer and divide our possessions and our family?

And at what point do you discover if you’ll stand the test

Ah. Everything is a risk. And risks are taken

Based on faith. My question is- is faith enough?
