Grace and truth

A rudimentary poem making a clear distinction between faith and fear; and how faith overcomes fear.

A cry of Faith

Faith, from grace and truth removes fear
Fear taints the mind that one cannot bear
The very load of sin the glorious Savior bore
Leading by example, that love of neighbor is first and core
________________________________________
Those that reject to be their brother's keeper
They drift afar and fall from grace
Marked as Cain, they become an alley's creeper
Repelled of the light, by the shame of their face
________________________________________
A cry of fear is a cry in vain
It shall not be heard, it will end in pain
A cry of faith, His ears to hear
The weak get strong and full of good cheer
To rid of despair is to begin to repair
She gave it her all; by faith and not by sight
A render of love was the widow’s mites

I know that I commented here before but it seems to have disappeared. You do write good poetry. Faith will always overcome fear.
