How far would you go?

How far would you go for what you believe in
.….would you endure discomfort?
How far would you go for what you believe in
…..would you run a marathon?
How far would you go for what you believe in
…..would you climb a mountain?
How far would you go for what you believe in
…..would you swim across the sea?
How far would you go for what you believe in
…..would you sacrifice your life?

How far would you go for what you believe in
….would you even cross the street?

~~

I’ve been pondering my convictions and beliefs lately…and been doing some soul searching about how strong my faith really is.  Would I endure anything…or would I break under the slightest pressure?

  1. So many questions… I suppose we all do what we have to, even if we say we wouldn’t or don’t want to. I’m thinking of caregivers. I’ve said myself I wouldn’t/couldn’t care for someone who needed full-time assistance. But here I am. So we do what we must. The real question is whether we resent it, because if so, that journey is much more difficult. Thanks for this poem – very thought-provoking!

  2. I would go to such lengths for what I believe in…but the degree would be different for each one of us. Your questions remind me of last Sunday’s beautiful gospel.

  3. I believe we’d all like to thonk we’d stand up long and go far for our convictions. But I, too, believe that it all depends in the time and circumstance. Living every day mindfully and making every day choices which positively affect ourselves and others is a feat in itself. 💜

  4. I echo your thoughts. I’ve been out of the blogosphere for quite sometime coz I didn’t like what’s going on in my mind. Reading and hearing about the local and world news has pushed my faith in humanity to the edge. I felt bad that the more I write about my disappointments towards mankind, the more my faith wavers.

    I’d still say, keep holding on to that thread of faith Bryan. 🙂
