Hope - Poem by Sarah Sisson
Hope gives us strength.
Strength allows us to love.
Challenges make us human and some days we are stunned with decisions we do not wish to make.
It is fear that makes us weary.
It is lack of power that makes us hurt.
In so many ways we loose our hope every day on simple matters.
In so many ways we look out into the world of others.
Inside us wonders hope.
Living in hope we can change.
Our lives are filled with madness and most days are so perverse living with others that grew up to be who we don’t expect them to be.
Some survive by persecuting.
Some have lived by pain.
Those who hate are in the now and those that are punished live in the past with mean strides the world has lashed.
In peace we have morals.
In kindness we are let down.
When hope is focused on a dream and that dream fails us we must simply change the dream to what was planned above our control.
In hardship we find the future.
In struggles we are healed.
The hope we give to others is a sign of maturity and that aged mentality will carry all of us to serenity, pleasure and eventually restore our hope to a new destination.
In acceptance we find security.
In meditation we find God.
Peace is around for the taking and love for ourselves can carry us to new hope for new things and destroying ourselves when things aren’t the way we planned is not the way to heaven here within our soul.
