Hope Beyond Hope


Loss of God
Disorientation?
No!
Just a momentary lapse
Of balance

When you think
All is lost
Return to that sanctuary
Where the light
Is fleeting...or possibly gaining

Focus
Let the cosmos
Permeate your being
The here and now
Opens to endless fields.….
…..to countless tomorrows

Even the smallest soul
Deserves a second chance
Environment of mistrust
Is somewhat murky
Mistrust is seeded at our core

When we truly open our eyes
The fault is in each one of us
I have found it easy to despair
In a world full of woe

But I press onward
To give the smallest of souls hope
I just hope that hope is not beyond hope
The Kings of Konfusion
Must be laid to rest

Not by resistance…
…but by unconditional Love

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
