I care not for the odds
Spoken by sooth sayer voices
They are blinded by statistics 
For a seemingly sure concept
Though a bleakness dampens 
Every fainting ray of light
There exist an unexplainable God 
Characteristic of sensitivity
Endowed to man by birthright 
To no other creature but he
In my bleakest hour 
I dare not say 
I do not believe
What I search for is an impossible concern
A thing so obscured 
There seemingly just isn't a way 
I trust not in mortal man
He does not grok the serverity of his own plight
For God my Father has just the plan
My wants are as heavy on my heart
As a weight to a drowning man
I can not save nor free a single sinner man
To heal the unhealable
Lame to walk again
To save the dieing 
Breath to life again
I view both the rising and setting of sun 
I walk in a light not viewed by temporal man
The wretchedness of worldly life
As I seek to do what is right
Infringed by fear of plotted death
What so ever to be my plight 
Hope sustains when all reasonable efforts are tested
Hope- the belief in worldly impossibilities
Hope -the sweetest of God given characteristics 
Hope -the strength to endure the unimaginable
Hope -the force of movement to that which would make still
Hope -the song for the heart when all instruments fail
Hope -the submission to death for there is life yet awaiting 
Hope –the gift from God  for our rejoicing

    Fantastic poem! I love the line "Hope- the song for the heart when all instruments fail" That one line sums up hope.
