Faith crisis poetry


  1. A shield of ice to keep at bay the heat of fiery birth.
  2. Deflect the quench of living drink with sharpened sword of thirst.
  3. A spear of night to pierce the light, protect the shadows dear.
  4. And courage hordes are smitten, hewn, with catapults of fear.
  5. A helmet thick and strong with grief to stop the blows of cheer.
  6. Destroyed the feasts and banquets with a thrusted hunger spear.
  7. A sling of pain to strike with speed the charging throngs of peace.
  8. Surrender now? Or stay and fight? When will the conflict cease?
