“Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.” ~Samuel Smiles

“At the end of the day, we must go forward with hope and not backward by fear and division.”    ~ Jesse Jackson

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness” ~ Desmond Tutu

“Hope is patient with the lamp lit.” ~ Turtullian


hope is future’s chance—indeed, a belief,
that more is not the same as before,
rather than pain and suffering appears relief,
fervent faith the means to restore,

what seems risk is often opportunity,
following fear’s aversion to repeating failure,
though, the past—fear’s supporter—rearranges reality,
with faith falsely placed in idols—rather than a Savior,

alas, so misplaced is the heart hardened from fear,
that deception leaves wisdom wounded, emptying the eyes,
a visible and desirable love pursues, yet, never let near,
as Truth is hidden in misfortune’s memories; forecasting lies,

but fear becomes a fatality when facing faith’s ferocity,
as faith allows love’s loyalty to overpower—to overcome,
Truth heard, its Word comfort with assurances of love’s reciprocity,
With hope permitting peace—and for love that is—to now become
