The poem(s) are below...


It is hope when,

It is fearlessness when you explore the lost jungle,
When all around you lose their mind and bungle

It is power when you influence people and soar,
When even the might and brights among us can but only roar

It is education when you read the scriptures with the elite and kings,
Yet sing the folk rhythm with the commonlings

It is humility when you design the missile decoy,
And walk and chat with the newspaper boy

It is class when you dance with the maidens,
Still explore silly options with pet kittens

But most importantly it is hope, when all around you lose hope,
You source a deep inner reservoir of courage and get everyone to cope.
