I really like the message conveyed in this. Even in trouble, like a street lamp, your faith will light the way as you've so eloquently expressed. Thanks for sharing this inspirational and well written Cinquain. Well done! Good luck in the contest.

Good afternoon Sanku... and yet sometimes we stumble on those wet cobbles up there or slip and fall on the wet slates. Sometimes one must hold tightly to the lamp post so as not to fall over when a car comes by and splashes you with muck and mire....

A very good entry for the cinquain contest. I like the idea linking faith to street lights.

Note: "help you not to" should be "help you to not" otherwise it contradicts the message you are trying to convey.

Good luck in the contest.

This cinquain piece is one of the most faith filling. It describes the equivalent of our courage against the circumstances around our lives. Very easy to relate.

This is a good poem and I can relate to it. Faith can keep us in line and in this instance from wandering off the street. There are several things I personally would change.

Our faith(s)
(Are) like street lamps

but help(s) 'us' not to fall into
You go from Our to you 'Our includes you. Where as you can go either way.' Either way is okay!

Nice concept. May I suggest you center the text for these. Imagine if there were no streetlights. We would be in danger more than falling into a ditch! Your artwork is very appealing, makes me think of a city that is not large but languishes in peace.
