Faith's Awakening

Awakened from her plaintive haze
with latent powers now ablaze
aglow with love and what she knows
Faith stands firm as shadows close
and clang their chains to conjure fear
while demons creep and specters near.
Impassioned by newfound belief
no longer slave to doubt or grief
she faces all with sharpened eyes
invincible at last, and wise.
