Faith’s Dichotomy

Lines For Kesha Collection

I am a forgotten tree in humanity’s garden
Shading all those who believe, toiling in the Son’s burden
My fruit nourishes and heals those starving and dying
Timber builds mansions with seals for those of faith not lying
I shield from adversity even those who cannot see
No winds or storm can break me, you seek shelter beneath me
Standing for the rich and poor no person shall be ignored
Forgiveness in peace and war, faith alone is your reward
My boughs are for whites and blacks my love is always equal
Roots deep, no religion lacks, while seemingly unequal
I stand for you till the last as you trust with faith of stone
And long, long after you pass, be sure you’re not alone.
