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! ❤
