Faith by Samia Mehbub

My heart beats loudly 

As these obstacles head

Before me in every step

That I take one at a time

Leaping and falling

Now taking it a few

Steps back to start over

Huge signs of

Left, right, straight

Huge signs of

Up and down

Muddled at the paths

That is waiting for me

Bruised knees from

Wrong directions but

Light in heart striving

For the path that is my calling

Is the one that brings the best

Is the one that matters

Holding me close

Lifting me up

Strengthening my


Whether I make it or not

Is not the problem

It's not meant to be simple

But I only pray for strength

To make promises with Angels

And make a difference

With every organ in

My body that will




Do it to those that care
