Yes, a simple five letter word that contains hope,
promise and love not only for myself, but for others.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t always this way!
working some days just a little bit harder to keep
faith within my reach, for the world can be harsh.
One must love themselves in order to feel the love
be barred, in order to go forth with joy in one’s heart,
wearing a facade only covers the inner pain of sadness.
One can pretend as they carry that dark cloud upon
you take a moment to notice what is around the bend so
you may touch others as beauty grows in your soul -
then and only then, will you feel His grace.
