You don’t have faith: Poem

You don’t have faith in

a person you test,

a passion you question,

a goal you rethink,

a dream you stifle,

a craft you conceal,

a belief you violate,

a god you make deals with,

a truth you ambiguate,

an identity you morph.


If you’re constantly on the fence,

you’ll never get to the other side.

  1. A poem of beauty that shows the beauty of truth with such wise words, Roshni. You invite every reader to reflect on life in our world and, if we all stayed there for a while thinking, we would surely have less fences of injustice to jump.
