'Make Hope Cure Dope' - Poem by Clarence Prince

Fear not, for as you live
You have got a hope
Just keep away from dope
Even if life should take a dive
As you could perhaps find
Know this: life is not always kind
Fortune wise, you, it could despise
But still that's not so much a crime
There are others without a dime
Life is like a steep hill to climb
It can stretch your every limb
Even then, you must still keep hope
And remember there's a Saviour
He's Lord, in Him there's favour
With each soul He'll share love
He helps the helpless to cope
Then keep away from dope
And live your life with hope
Make hope cure dope.

    A message that I hope finds an ever widening circle. So much devastation, so much lost talent. Your positive message is to the point.10 (Report) Reply

    i assume dope refers to drugs, not a person! yes, i suppose a belief in God and eventual salvation....can help keep some people away from potentially harmful habits.

    the poem shall appear in my/our November 'a showcase for PH poets', Section B. this month the showcase is in fours Sections, each of which is accessed by clicking on a separate poem in my poem list....around #50 on my list.

    thanks, Clarence.
