sunday scribblings prompt "experiment"

faith

it's experimental, this faith i have in you.
it hasn't always been that true.
in fact there was a time in my youth
when my faith was unfailing. devout even,
never questioning, as i knew the truth.
now my days go by with a question;
around every corner, in the dark
in the light, even in when i sleep,
i doubt. am i good enough, do i work
enough. this lack of faith makes me weep,
for you, for clarity, for something
to get me through this failing
faith.

Your writing could easily be my own experience. Knowing the truth, the older I get I still am searching for 'clarity.' But take heart, faith is a gift that is never taken away again.
Lovely post.
