Today’s prompt, day 24 of the poem-a-day challenge, is to write about faith. I address a moment of deep faith that we all take for granted. Don’t believe me? I’ll let you be the judge.
Consider the way we take it for granted
driving the streets with nary a care. Oh sure,
we look both ways, and stop at lights, taking it
for granted that everyone else does the same.
We barrel down the road, speeding when we
are in a hurry, using our horn sometimes
or cursing if someone is going too slow.
Trusting implicitly that they stay in their
lane. And that, my friends, is what we call blind faith.
