Hope for Hope

Things come to us

From around and beyond,

Above and below.

We learn them,

From those we love

We meet

We know.

We learn those things

They make us…

Who we are.

We don’t understand

Until we grow.

We are built…

As we live,

On others love,

Their sadness.

We learn our own

And they mesh.

We come here with

Only our flesh.

We want individuality,

But we live in duality.

Yours, we are,

And ours.

Swimming in our history.

We, through our living

Pass on

To the next lives.

Will we make them

Good husband and good wives?

Will the world prosper or die?

Did we teach them right?

Hope and faith

Must be kindled,



These are the foods upon which,

Souls grow.


Comes from these,

For, even those without,

Hope for Hope!
