Faith…so small
barely seen
a grain of sand
or a mustard seed
It’s enough
… climb Everest
(or get out of bed)
… swim across oceans
(or simply make it through the day)
… beat the darkness
(and hold a hand of any colour)
… part an ocean of doubts
… put a smile on your heart

EVEN with the devil on your back
