Faith

 

 

She stands there

Unfaltering

Day after day

White robe

Wooden palms pressed against each other

Wire wings extended

 

Yet she stands there

Unfaltering

Head lowered slightly

Eyes carved shut

No one will ever know the color surrounding her pupils

Against all odds she sees everything

 

As she stands there

Unfaltering

The dust collecting around her

The days growing shorter, darker, colder

Yet never dimming the white of her gown

Or chilling the frame of her wings

 

And she stands there

Unfaltering

I want to ask her

I want an explanation

Unconditional belief is often my struggle

And suddenly she answers

 

She stands there

Unfaltering

Hands steady before her heart

Fingertips pointing heavenward

No speaking, boasting, preaching

Silent and serene

 

She stands there

Unfaltering
