Faith has many dimensions
it casts shadow and reflects light in a thousand languages
the curve of its whisper and the strength of its word
can build hope out of nothing
and linger long after inspiration has gone.
Faith is not one voice
it is not one song
it is a million colors
under a million suns
and has a million stars
to call upon
Faith has many features
eyes with tears and prayers unheard by
it is that which holds us to our dreams
and keeps us strong when
even the road seems to turn
against us and head back
from where we have come.
We have passed into twilight
we have stepped into the in-between
when daylight has sighed and darkness lingers just on the edge of breath.
I want to take a moment to remind people of something important:
Freedom does not come because it is desired. It does not come because it is asked. It does not come because a people think it should. It comes when demand it, stand up for it, and voices lift up behind it. Then, and only then, when all those for it come together and in a resounding voice ring it out – will Freedom come to rest upon the hearts of those enslaved by the forces of discrimination, degredation, demoralization, defamation and destruction. Only then. SO
BE BOLD! STAND BOLDLY! SPEAK BOLDLY! BE BOLD!
