Hope: The Conquering Power


Hope a slippery slope that’s so easy to let go
so easy to forget and let worries worry us that we regress
that we digress in a puddle of mess

Hope a strengthened idea, a rebellious concept, an evolved mindset
no proof in what could be, might be, or probably never be
yet we set our minds on hope and hope we don’t in the end regret
that we don’t let the current currency of what currently is, bother you and me

Hope not made for the strong but made for the weak that seek
more than what they see and in their heart the true strength of what they see
what they seek lies in you and me

Hope the messenger, the good news on a bow fletcher
when it seems too hard the inspiring spirit lifter
so let that inspiring inspiration inspire you empower you

Hope and take hold and behold the great tool God use
to mold the hopeless to shape the faithless to extract out the greatness
of the obvious less then shapeless weakness of you and me

Hope the joy of what’s to come, the blessing that already is,
the courage that fills the heart, the conquering power
that conquers the world

Thought it was the end but it only just began

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
