Hopes Come True

I was hoping to find my true love in the city bars at night, but I just couldn’t meet a woman who, for me, was a match just right. I was starting to lose hope of ever knowing love that way, when I met my darling, sweetheart in the grocery store one day. I was hoping to find knowledge in the schoolbooks that I read, but I just found the facts and figures getting all mixed up in my head. I was starting to lose hope of ever becoming really smart, then, when I stopped analyzing everything, my education began to start. I was hoping to make my fortune by winning the lottery, but the money I spent on tickets just added to my misery. I was starting to lose hope of my fortune coming along, when I met a country singer and he invested in my song. I was hoping to find forgiveness by confessing to my priest, but I found even with all the penitence my sinning did not decrease. I was starting to lose hope of saving my mortal soul, but when I allowed for self-forgiveness I started to reach my goal. I was hoping to find happiness by purchasing luxuries galore, but I found no matter how much I had I just wanted to own more. I was starting to lose hope of ever becoming a happy man, when my wife gave me some children and happiness I could understand. So, never give up hope of realizing your lifelong dreams; things can always become better, no matter how bad it seems. And, when you least expect it your hopes will sure come true - This I know will happen because it’s now what I hope for you.

    Joe, this is a longer poem that suffers no lull.. Strong throughout and building, building to your last stanza which beautifully brings it home with truth and hope!
