One Must Try To Hope Again


ONE MUST TRY TO HOPE AGAIN

One must try to hope again
Its hard
Too many sicknesses deaths
Too many lost
And too much of one’s own world gone

Still each day is a new day
And one must try to hope again

Being old is tiring and boring
And uselessness hurts very much

But somehow there has to be something
A grandchild
A song
A sudden revelation of beauty

There are still things in life
Though most of life is gone
And most hopes gone with it

One must try to hope again
To stay alive
To be the best one can
For those who still care

Not to let the team down

One must try to hope again
And try to keep going.

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.
