A Sense of Hope

November Poem Day #22

A Sense of Hope

We shiver and shudder within us
when we think of the awful plight
of the world, its wars, rumors of wars,
rampant corruption, senseless killings,
abuse, earthquakes, abject poverty,
the subjugation of so many people,
apathy, extremism, and a host
of other vile and nasty things.

It almost makes us crawl
into our rooms, close the blinds,
and avoid any connection
to the outside world.

But there is hope,
hope in Jesus Christ,
hope in His Atonement,
hope that we will be free

from all challenges
that doth beset us,
hope that He will come
again and reign in all his Majesty.

I believe in this hope.
I trust that hope is real.
I pray for this hope.
I invite hope to enter

into everyone’s life.
Hope is what will propel us
out of the abyss of hopelessness.
Hope will shatter the darkness

and allow Light to enter our lives.
Hope must prevail within us
to elicit the peace we must feel
to be whole once again,
today, tomorrow, and forever!
