the palm of your hand.

Meeting the Challenge

Built on stone foundations
Faith's stronghold
Will stand firm when sandcastles fall
When waves of frustrations
Shout and scold
Causing the ego to feel small.

Faith is the soul's domain
Goes beyond
The realm of matter - death and life
Partners spirit and brain
It is spawned
And strengthened when we confront strife.

Faith the power within
That gives us
Inner strength to meet life's demands
With a determined grin
Without fuss
Working hard with both minds and hands.
