A Thing Called Hope Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

A Thing Called Hope

Rating: 4.8

In all worthwhile endeavors,
No matter size or scope.
It shall either have a life,
Or die, a thing called hope.

It all depends on caring.
Those willing to take part.
Hope, to be sustained at all;
Requires a beating heart.

Each heart that God created,
Has value each in turn.
When called upon to voice it,
Don't shrink from your concern.

Its in those special moments,
When life gives you a choice;
You'll either sit in silence,
Or stand and lend your voice.

It's with the inspiration
Derived from what you do.
Others may participate
And make your dream come true.

If you need inspiration
To act on your concern,
Just take note of your children,
And how they come to learn.

They look to you for guidance,
To see what they should do.
How to be a citizen.
Concerned, what do they do?

It's now your time for choosing;
Don't sit, and cry, and mope.
It shall either have a life,
Or die, a thing called hope.

Just because something good ends doesn't mean that something better won't begin. All what we acquire is based on the hope we keepsafe in our lockers with as much practical approach as we can. Regards Naseer
