What is this inner disposition called faith,
this stance toward life and meaning?
Some say it is like a tide,
faith ebbs and flows,
lives a life of alternations.
Others maintain that faith is a rock,
firm and reliable,
no matter the storms or tempests of life.
I say that faith is like the sun, a gift,
that shines everywhere on everyone
and yet, because of intense brightness, also blinds.
In the end, faith is a gracious mystery
offered to all, accepted by some.
