'Hope N' Pray' - Poem by Moses Ocharo

When you're down and feel like giving up;
when you're tempest-tost in the seas of misfortune,
when it seems that the world's on top of you,
and all your days have turned to night;
all your dreams into nightmares,
just hope and pray!

Don't slay your wrists to bleed;
or course and so covet another's life,
think of this as a race, a hurdle.
Thinl of the price at the end of it all;
numb you body, close your mind, and blind your heart.
Let your soul take you through this,
just hope and pray!

For like the sun that ever shines
that fights not the moon at dawn
but slowly turns from a spot to a whole sun
and bit by bit casts away the moon's dark
so will you overcome this if you believe.
Just hope and pray!
