Poem: Keeping the Faith

Every day I think about what happened that day.

I keep a mental picture of everything I do,

notice how people act toward me day by day,

and see how humans can quickly change their ways.

One day a friend, the next day an enemy.

What shall I do?

Shall I give up totally or shall I keep living this way?

People are the same wherever you go.

You have to adjust to the ways of man.

You must be prepared to take what’s dished out.

If you know you’re doing right and they’re wrong,

the only thing left is keeping the faith.
