Where To Place Faith

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Faith

“I picked this motif because officially this is the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week. I shortened it to “Faith” because my underlying thematic question truly is:

“What do you ~ what can we ~ have faith in these days?”

Your Challenge: Write a new new poem that finds faith

My belief is placed
in the hands of humanity.
Not a religious faith,
but one of hope
that people everywhere
will care enough to work
together, without judging,
toward a peaceful world.
Increase your knowledge
of other cultures; embrace them.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    When we get to know people, we realize we are all just….people. there is so much beauty in the diversity of cultures. Loved this one, Sara.

    Yes, Sara, I am holding on to this faith, trying to keep it renewed. And if we come to know God, it has to be through the actions of people.

    Indeed, this is my philosophy as well…..I fear that everyone does not have it though, and this troubles my soul greatly.

    According to myth, at the bottom of Pandora’s box of sins was hope. Your words of hope touch me.
