For That I Have But Only Faith

For that I have my Courage—
To stand against the grain,
But courage lacks a certain piece
When faced a useful gain.
For that I have my Knowledge—
To live, to learn, to grow,
But even knowledge, by the book,
Knows not the force to row.
For that I have my Strength—
The willingness to fight,
But what can strength, in purest sense,
Give the heart what’s right.
For that I have my Love—
To spread to those who care,
But love has ends and cannot meet
The weight that I must bear.
For that I have but only Faith—
In God to save my life,
And only He, My one true light
Can guide me through my strife.

The author's comments:
My inspiration for this poem came to me one night after school. My father has recently lost his job and the family has been going through somewhat of a hard time. Through it all I have known that all I have to do is trust. Trust in God and in my own abilities. My hope is that this article will give a people a sense of joy and trust, the feeling that I know while even going through difficult times. Trust in God and everything will be okay.
