Faithless

I will pray with you.
I will speak
in the tongue you taught me.
I will stitch supplications
from stars and half-remembered psalms.

I'll offer the alms,
and bait the switch.

I'll be faith
in your faithless night.

Love the last stanza. The utmost in selflessness is to "be" faith for someone else who has lost theirs or just lost hope. Beautiful and inspiring, MZ. xo

Makes me think of Audio Slave.... "I Am The Highway" not a bad thing.

This speaks to me of a return to a spiritual path and a renewal of faith, against or despite a seemingly inattentive god. It's a beautiful and heartbreaking loyalty.

Oh dear. A sharp rebuke to be sure. Well done. K.
