invisible tattoos

I have an invisible tattoo on my left hand.
like prisoners who have letters tattooed on their knuckles, I, too, have letters on mine.
mine say faith.
and I glance at that word frequently.
when riding a difficult climb, when in the middle of something I don't want to be doing, when contemplating life and my current position in the universe. it grounds me, gives me courage, gives me comfort. it reminds me that I am exactly where I am supposed to be, and that all will work its way out if I continue to be true to who I am.
it's invisible, amazingly powerful, and it's always there when I remember to look.
