If Faith Finds You…

Ever since a child I dreamt of flying.
Flapping my wings ceaselessly I kept on trying.

Each attempt faster
and each try harder…

So hard was the try,
that I was sure to touch the sky.

But turning around, I was shocked when I found,
My bleeding feet still stuck on the ground…

Saddened though But not disheartened for sure…
I promised to myself that I shall endure.

With prayer on my lips and Hope on my eyes,
I waited for the sun to rise…

As disbelief with my Faith fought
‘Is God merciless??’ I thought…

Tears rolling down my cheek,
hopes abandoned, efforts bleak,
and prayers yet unanswered…
I bled and begged in my attempt to be heard…

Wailing in despair…
I heard a voice from nowhere.

It had to be God.
It had to be Him.

He asked me a heinous question..
to comply with which had to be a sin…

I pondered…If he had come to heal…
then how do I comprehend this cruel deal??

I was to mortgage my very dear wings,
to get back my dream to fly…

My heart beats deafening,
I wondered…
whether to kill my dream or choose myself to die.

Drenched in cold sweat…
I couldn’t help but curse my fate.

Calming myself as I tried to bring back faith…
I decided.
I would choose my dream over my death.

Blood oozed down from my already bloody wings…
fell on the floor in curious rings.
My wings were clipped,
my soul ripped…

I was scared.. What If my faith slipped??

The end was nearing
and God still not hearing…
I felt cheated,
with all my faith defeated.

God asked, “Have you lost your dream, your courage and Faith too??.
But my heart said,” You have lost faith. But what If faith found you?”

And It was then that I held on,
with an undaunted faith ever known..

I nodded a wild No
and let him Know…
“I believe in my Faith.
I believe in You too.
And I believe in miracles that you do.”

He smiled…

Then Golden wings from a golden sky,
led me to the stars without a chance to deny.

I turned to thank. To wave back…
But he had disappeared silently into the dark.

I knew…
Faith would tease me,test me.. torment and torture…
But in the end If I endure…
Even If I lose Faith, Faith would find me for sure.

  10. Your words are just so powerful!
    I know this is my third comment, and you might have thought I am quite annoying by now, but after reading this I couldn’t help myself.
    Love the flow of it all. The belief that I find in these words, the ‘trust’, the ‘faith’ is all crafted so splendidly.
    Usually it is our ‘experiences’ that match with our writings. And your story seems the same. Life has taught you great things, and I am pleased to find your blog and get inspired!
