How Much Does it take for Faith to Shake? – The Poem

what is faith after all?
in between what you know
and what you don’t yet
there lies a little gap
where the tree of faith grow

So how much does it take
for one to lose his faith?
ignorance, conflict,
grief, confusion, ordeal,
circumstance, unfair scaith?

I’ve been quite a loser
I keep on losing things
keys, wallet, phone, pen
Yet I never lose faith
even if the wraith sings.
