Where's hope?


In the flight of a bird,
there is hope.
In the smile of a child,
there is hope.
In the green shadow of a tree,
there is hope.
There is hope all around,
where the eyes can see,
as long as there's something good happening
in the world,
there is hope.
Hope for what? I ask, I want to know.
Hope for everyone to fulfill a role.
Is there hope for me? I just want to be given a chance
to do what I am meant for;
Is there hope for my words to be given enough room to fly?
Is there hope for words anymore in this life?

    Sometimes I ask myself the same question: is there hope for me? But I create it by just believing that things will only get better. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
