Edilson Ferreira – Matter of Faith

Matter of Faith.

We cannot share with companions
that we do not catch a glimpse
of our journey’s end,
what or where to we are going.
Like human primeval hordes
we continue to come and go
on hidden crowd’s desires,
sometimes-guileful ones.
In despite of the feeling
we are pursuing threads
in an old Greek labyrinth,
we secretly believe a sense
in such comings and goings.
Since this is matter of faith,
not suitable to science eyes,
must be kept by so little of us.

Mr. Ferreira is a Brazilian poet who writes in English rather than Portuguese, in order to reach more people.  He has been published in four printed British Anthologies, online or printed reviews like Cyclamens and Swords, Right Hand Pointing, Boston Poetry Magazine, West Ward Quarterly, TWJ Magazine, The Lake, The Stare’s Nest and some others. Short-listed in four American Poetry Contests, he began to write after retirement as a Bank Manager and is seventy-one years old. He lives in a small town with his wife, three sons and a granddaughter.
