Crossing the Ocean of Faith

Crossing the Ocean of Faith
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

How do I fly and keep a foot on the ground
How can I sail with my anchor unbound
How can I war while keeping the peace
How do I let go if I refuse to release

I cannot race on if I'm always slowing down
Nor can I swim if my strokes are not sound
And how can I sing if my mouth does not open
Or see the whole world if I fear crossing oceans

...I can't.

Living with purpose is a choice I must make
Making my life count is not something I can fake
Living in fear of shadows is no longer an option 
Love has propelled me and light has flushed the toxin

It's time to pick up my feet and haul up the anchor
To decide where I stand, to let loose and conquer
Time to run the race with ever increasing pace
To cross the oceans and spread wide my arms in faith


  1. Beautiful poem, and a perfect photograph! :-)

  2. Dear Adrielle, what a beuatiful and positive poem, that we can all relate to, as we all at times must sail into the unknown.;)
    Love the new background too.;)

  3. It is always good to take a leap of faith. The first step is always the hardest. This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Patrick Overton, "When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly."
    Beautiful photo!
