For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my searching days , which led to me finding true peace and significance.
Shield of Faith
How easily our souls are brought from us.
How impulsively we are coaxed to do evil.
We postpone pain and pressures for ease
that entices our selfish whims.
Carrying a shield of faith,
the bombardments from evil are warded off.
The power of Faith,
the power of Love’s shield
provides for those who believe,
but the truth of that shield
can only be heard by those
whose heart is open enough to accept it.
