Keeping the Faith

 

Toni?

No!

No?

I’m tired, God. I’m tired and I’m scared.

You’re not alone, you know.

Then why do I feel alone?

You’re not. The whole world is feeling what you’re feeling.

But why, God? Why is it happening?

You know why.

No! I don’t!

You do. You know about opposites. You know there is no “up” without a “down.” No “in” without an ‘out.”

But why, God? What does it mean?

Mean? Maybe there is no meaning.  Remember what the poet said: What does a flower mean? Maybe the only meaning is in the experience. Experience it. All of it. The good and the bad. The love and the fear. Besides, it’s almost over. Hang on! Keep the faith! Can you do that?

I'll try. 

Will you do that?

Yes.
