|Title:||Sonnet: “When Existential Angst Meets Faith”|
"Why must we suffer hardships and disease?"|
we often wonder. Pain? Adversity?
War? Famine? Death!?...Our best philosophy
cannot put these concerns to rest or ease.
Depression, mania, infirmities
of the mind — subjects of psychology
that are all causes of man's misery:
the gruesome outcome of these maladies
is suicide! But we're not without hope
or God's compassion. Today we can go
on with meds and healthcare; we learn and cope.
It's easy to lose faith when we are low
and in despair... but we are in God's scope
and hands too — this put your trust in and know....
