Hope

Written by: Ashley Smeltzer

If you can look at the sunset everyday and smile then you still have hope.
If the smile of a young child makes you feel good inside then you still have hope.
If you can still see the hope in other people then you still have hope.
If the rain breaking on a roof top can still make you sleep then you still have hope.
If the sight of a rainbow still makes you stop and stare then you still have hope.
If the fur of your favorite pet still feels soft under your fingertips then you still have hope.
If you are still reading this poem then you still want to have hope.
