To walk into a room

After Acts 2

To walk into a room
full of people
of another language
another culture
another world
and be told to speak
and be told to encourage
and to teach

with no forethought
with no preparation
with no understanding

to feel the beginnings of sweat
the beginnings of fear
the desire to flee

and then to stand in hope
to stand and to speak

this is called idiocy
this is called trust
this is called faith
