On Faith

If I die, I die,
Esther vowed.

Wherever you go, I go,
Ruth promised.

Here I am. Send me.
Isaiah volunteered.

May it be done to me
according to Your word,
young Mary committed
a faithful acceptance
echoed in Gethsemane -- 

Not my will,
but Yours be done.

These steps of faith,
sacrifices of self,
willingness of hearts --

Can they be found today?
Can they be found in me?
