I challenged a student who just completed high school to write a poem on faith. I am actually surprised she did this in a matter of 30 minutes:


Many find it difficult holding on to me

I am defined as the substance of things hoped for

The evidence of things not seen

I am the best companion in trying times

Yet you tend to be impatient when I am just what you need

My components are peace and assurance

But most importantly hope because without it I have nothing to give substance to

I do grow so like a seed

When I am nurtured

Ā I became a mighty tree

And provide you with shade under the scorching sun

Faith is my name

Love Nyaaba
