Living Life Poetically

Living Life Poetically: Hope’s Promise

The feeling of hope has literally been around longer than we can possibly imagine. As humans, whenever our situation or condition has been less than ideal, hope has carried us through; enabling us to not only envision a better tomorrow but also strive toward it.

Now, imagine if hope had a voice. What would it tell us? Rephrasing that question, what has it already told us? The poem, “Hope’s Promise,” is about that.

Hope once gave a promise,
And its promise remains.

“The past and present, I cannot reclaim…”

“But the future I can see, and I see your dreams a guarantee.
Just have me,” Hope said, “and you too shall see.”

Hope once gave a promise,
And its promise remains.

“The past and present, I cannot reclaim…”

“But, whatever your past and present may be,
It’s easier to cope when you have me.”

“Especially when the wait is long for problems to flee.”

Just don’t lose me,” Hope said, “and strong you will be.”
