Faith Comes Only 2010

Janet Kuypers
(poetry converted to prose)

    You made your choice, and I went home, all by myself.
    and you went home with your faith.
    I hope your faith keeps you warm at night.
    I realized something: your faith comes only when you have nothing concrete to hold on to, nothing to rely on, nothing concrete.
    apparently you only have faith when you have nothing else.
