When Gentlemen can see —
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

    I really enjoyed this poem, Sometimes our faith does have to be put into question, how firm is your faith? Do you have to see it in order to believe it

  2. Okere, Allison Nkem says:

    Faith is bringing to existence a thought, an idea, a vision, an immagination, an inspiration, and an invention which you know not how and where to start to it’s manifestation through obedience to the voice that supplies it. The evidence is only on the voice you hear from your spirit or inner mind.
