All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

I walk by Faith, not by sight


Life can be so hard

So full of pain and hardship

But the promise He

Will never leave nor forsake

Is our constant strong fortress

This is a Tanka I wrote when I had been going through a tough time.
I hope others can find inspiration in it.

It's a form of poetry, you can look it up, it just has a syllable count.

I really like this~ reminds me of my work "Perseverance!" I like how you spaced out the lines though, to give the poem more emphasis.

yes, 'He' is Jesus =) Thank you for  your comment, most people think this is really short, but it's a Tanka, with the syllable count 5-7-5-7-7
