Hope




Hope is an image of goals

 

planted firmly in your mind.

When looking at life before you,

hope lines the paths you find.

 

Hope is a well of courage

nestled deep within your heart.

When faltering in fear and doubt,

hope pushes you to start.

 

Hope is an urge to keep going,

for limbs too tired and weak.

When apathy stills all desire,

hope sparks the fuel you seek.

 

Hope is a promise of patience

as you wait for distress to wane.

When all you can do is nothing,

hope pulls you through the pain.

 

Hope is a spirit that lifts you,

should heaviness pull at your soul.

When torn apart by losses,

hope mends to keep you whole.
