Faith

hold on tight
hold on as a child holds to her father’s neck,
as summer day light lingers late;
as tightly as you grasped your first car keys,
hold on.

hold on like you hold your breath under water,
hold like the last stubborn leaf in November,
or like a bird on a branch in the wind,
and keep on holding.

a penny for your thoughts
