Poem: Keeping Faith

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Keeping Faith" is a poem describing how rain doesn't spoil her day.

Instead it makes her feel more alive with each drop.

She stands boldly, lingering to see the hands of God paint a rainbow in the sky taking the torrent storms away.

"Keeping Faith"

The rain does not

dampen her mood,

for each droplet touching her head

makes her feels more alive.


Like lightening splitting a tree,

she stands boldly,

waiting to inhale

each second.


Lingering with anticipation,

to watch the hands of God

paint a band of color across the sky,

keeping the torrent storms at bay.

The way I see it,

if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
