Hope’s Flame

Hearing hope-filled words

Again and again

 

Different story

Always same message

 

Better tomorrow’s

Waiting in the wings

 

Whatever issue

Life’s hollow words sting

 

Today’s hope searching

Empty souls stare out

 

Yesterday shattered

Future dreams snuffed out

 

Confidence shaken

Sunrise uncertain

 

Starving for action

Grieving voices weep

 

Life struggles onward

Energy waning

 

From smallest ember

Hope’s flame still glowing

    • Eileen, thank you for sharing this poem. Given the darkness we see across this country each day, I used this poem as an outlet for some of my feelings. I hope others can read these verses with a similar application.

  2. Download those fruits of the spirit into your heart – and as you eat them, digest them, and let them live in you, the hope light that seemed dim will become a beacon!! No more uncertain sunrise! ❤
