What do we know?

Photo prompt from Magpie Tales.
Fact or faith
What’s the difference?
Two and two are four
Is it?
What is two?

Knowing it is different
Than feeling it
I know hard
Have faith it will hurt
Feeling it lacerates
I know love is good
Have faith it is beautiful
Feeling it is euphoric

My grandmother was right
“Nobody knows”

But there is faith
