Child of Faith

Child of faith, watch your step,
look carefully where you tread,
in your passage through life,
trials, tribulations and strife.

Child of faith, watch your words,
too easily delivered, freely, perhaps
innocently - yet, with such power to
trouble another to one's very core too.

Child of faith, watch your mind,
as it grapples with untold revelations
that may overwhelm your human existence,
giving you cause for perhaps, false pretences.

Child of faith, watch your actions,
too readily provoked at times, your crimes,
perpetrated upon others in ignorance,
and yet, believed to be in innocence.

Child of faith, watch your dreams,
those that bedevil your will to succeed,
above all else, all others, mother, father,
son, daughter, friend, or simply any other.

Child of faith, watch your passions,
that these may never distract you from love,
that which we all need in order to grow, flow,
and bring about united, a most glorious tomorrow.
