Hope is

Hope is like a bird that soars in your soul
Without hope you never feel quite whole.
The soul withers and dies, growing cold
Hope sings a song that can never get old.

Hope is linked somewhat to faith
Providing security, a place that is safe.
Hope can be as vast and open  as the sky
Hope provides reason as the day passes by.

Hope is something that you can’t live without
Without it, you sink into the shadows of doubt.
Hopeless is a feeling when all is lost
Inner peace becomes the final cost.

Hope is something that we all need
It is like food for the soul to feed.
It can disappear as fast as it comes
Nobody can see when hope is undone.
