why i keep the faith

like waking up and hoping

this would be the day that she would see me,

smile at me, unsuperficially.

i keep telling my face in the mirror,

today will be different,

today will be fun, and it would not be like yesterday.

i go about my business, keeping my eyes open,

and placing my heart on my sleeve,

all the while looking for the smile to match my own.

i have not found it yet,

or maybe i have, but always too late to matter,

and i have to take a pause to catch my breath,

to keep my soul from surrendering.

but today is different,

today will be new,

today i will find her,

and she, me.

why do i keep on?

why do i keep hoping?


if you have felt the wind on your face,

buoyed by invisible wings,

you would not ask again.

  1. ahhh, but one should always keep the faith, guerdon. Faith to an ideal should always lead to its fullfilment, is how I look at it, my friend..:)
