Treasure Island

Noah Body


A World Without Hope


So dark and dreary
Not one ray of light
No not even nearly

Not a possibility one
To be found in the land
For without any hope
Live is ever so bland

Good things just will not come
Better days will never be found
If you cannot hope for them
They will never come round

Hope is belief in better things
It is trusting it won't always be bad
It is believing that it will improve
It is knowing you won't always be sad

So give yourself hope for another day
All you must do is to believe
Or the sadness that weighs on your soul today
Will never end, it will never leave

May the good Lord grant me this prayer
A day without hope may I never face
It is an integral part of what I am
A poor member of the human race

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
