Poem: “Living on the Edge of Believing” by Mike Bowling [Vol. 3, #17]

Living on the Edge of Believing
(A Poem for the Season of Easter)
Michael J. Bowling

Living on the edge of believing ,
Where we have glimpses of a New Jerusalem
Where the shadows dance teasing our doubt,
Where fear of failure mocks our every halting step,
How do we move forward without slipping,
                                    tumbling
                                    falling?

Living on the edge of believing,
Where the fog of self hides the path ahead,
Where the blur of busyness distracts our attention,
Where the din of noise drowns out all thought,
How do we move forward without slipping,
                                    tumbling,
                                    falling?

Living on the edge of believing,
Where death fades into life,
Where despair gives way to hope,
Where fear cowers in the presence of love,
How do we move forward without slipping,
                                    tumbling,
                                    falling?
