My Faith




His margins are clear,
while mine complicated.
I carry faith in the pocket of my heart,
somewhere between the chambers of my heart.
He's black and white,
while I am pink and grey.
My margins may be complicated
but I live my truth,
clear,
organic,
loud.

    That's the truth right there, Madam. Captures me too.

  15. I love the notion of carrying our faith...and, for me, the longer I've carried my faith, the softer and less clear my 'margins' have become. I don't know who "he" is...but there's so much hope here - that we can live closely connected to someone who's faith might not match or mirror our own. And do that in such a way that we are at one with someone else and true to ourselves. This really spoke to me!

  17. 'my margins may be complicated' I am with you on this, lovely write!

  18. Those words, "I LIVE MY TRUTH!" say everything about you that I'd EVER need to know. So many are "Black and "White. Up or Down...but can they actually admit to "LIVE MY TRUTH"?

    You are in the minority. I know. because I live my truth also--but i falter. I talk daily at 7 AM with around 100 peeps who try to LIVE THEIR TRUTHS. All have taken such strides away from where they began their journey.

    And so we help each other to live our own truth, whatever that may be.

    REALLY a piece of truth here, with heart wide open, you write. Ayala, thank you.
    PEACE!

  19. Yea, me too Ayala. Your way reminds me of the beautiful fractals. Complex. irregular, organic and real. Well penned.

  20. Cheers to embracing the complicated!

  21. I often contemplate this very notion, and you put into beautiful poetry...so aptly. His love is simple to understand...mine is certainly there but much more complex. Love this work!

  22. Excellent job Ayala. Love how this piece turned out and how you used the notion of margins to frame this piece. The image is pretty cool as well. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  23. And you write the way you live. Very nice piece.

  24. So precosely aware of what and who you are, this poem brings out the way we must understand relationships. Placed inside boundaries and being alive to them brings us into the realization of how much the world and others define us.

  25. Really like how you compare and contrast. It does make the narrator all the more human and soft. Effective emphasis on the margins between human and divine. Enjoyed this piece.

  26. Ooh, I love the idea of complicated margins. I am definitely going to remember that phrase. Thanks, Ayala! xo

  27. I am taking he with a capital H as the divine - (although in my mind those margins are far from clear) yet I believe in the nature of your faith they are, and that you can explore the depth of your faith and your relationship with that "other" is remarkable in this short and concise poem. Amazing!!

  28. I like the "organic" at the end... leaves the feeling that there is room to expand, grow, and shape.... "complicated margins" -- I like how you say it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Some people may be black and white- some people more co,our full- more 'organic'- what matters most is if you fit- and this goes for love, faith, religion, e.t.c- very thoughtful poem and touches on questions relevant to us all

  30. Succinct write! I enjoy the pairing of margins and heart chambers. Well put.

  32. I too have complicated margins...love that line. Fantastic poem

    ReplyDelete
  33. It all feels very complicated to me==but your poem has real authority. K.

    ReplyDelete
  34. the downside to complication is the potential for misunderstanding, so i just eat up how you ended with knowing your truth. i mean, complication is beautiful with understanding. and this also has a lot of heart. that i really like too.

  35. "My margins may be complicated

  36. Very clever piece! Amazingly so :) We have to have those margins and yet we have to carry our faith close to the heart and let no-one challenge it :) Awesome piece! xoxo
