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.
