Courage In Faith
On the eve of judgement day,
it is the uncertainty of the night
that is so precious and so dear;
whatever the verdict, the fear
of the lesser of the outcomes
ignites a fire in the core
that fuels inspiration of
what might be if favor shone
on the unfortunate self,
and all the things that can be done
up until the last minute
before standing with the judge
and the jury, the love
of freedom in that moment
outweighs any bad judgement,
outweighs any outcome good or bad,
because it is the purest feeling
I have ever known, and I am grateful
to the judge, to the jury, and to God
for the bliss of anticipation,
and for losing all control;
for faith is knowing that I'll be okay
either way, because the power
has always resided in me.
