Faith is being content to wait
in the desert of sweltering heat,
watching the world go dancing by in a cool breeze-
without abandoning your post.
Faith is the invisible candy so sweet
you’d turn down 7,000 glamorous invitations-
to savor a single piece, in solitude.
If you hold onto your faith long enough,
it becomes an eternal spring of freedom,
welling up all around you-
carrying you to distant lands of indescribable bounty.
