Hope 2018-90

Well, after many occasions of despair by those of this Earth, doing things to one

another, abusing others beyond thinking, it is still good to HOPE, that the world

will or can be one of betterment.

Hope?    2018-90

Is there hope – that the world will wake up

To a common goal of the survival of mankind?

That future generations will be able to breath,

To eat, to drink of nature’s plentiful bounty?

 

Is there hope- that the inhabitants of the world

Will learn to live in peace with one another?

Co-existing with mutual respect of each other

Realizing each has rights to separate individuality?

 

Is there hope- that the hunger, the health, the overall

Needs of those of the world will be acknowledged?

To have action instead of promises, to have results

Instead of delays, to give hope instead of despair?

Hope? 2018-63

I am NOT that naïve that I feel all is lost in the world today. I do feel that as a species, living and breathing and being the most supreme (?) being, we have the capability to make things correct. Whether or not this is true or just a pipe dream will be the final fact to be seen as true or not…..

Is there hope – that the world will wake up

To a common goal of the survival of mankind?

That future generations will be able to breath,

To eat, to drink of natures plentiful bounty?

 

Is there hope- that the inhabitants of the world

Will lean to live in peace with one another?

Co-existing with mutual respect of each other

Realizing each has rights to separate individuality?

 

Is there hope- that the hunger, the health, the overall

Needs of those of the world will be acknowledged?

To have action instead of promises, to have results

Instead of delays, to give hope instead of despair?

Promises 2018-47

We all make promises with the hope that they will come to fruition, with positive thoughts of anticipation. To do otherwise is NOT the thing to do, even if most of us are guilty of thinking somewhat negative at times.  To not be positive is, perhaps, a sure way of experiencing the negative thoughts to arrive and occur.

Promises  2018-47

A politician saying what he will,

Again, again and once more again,

A bride and groom at the altar,

Making a forever wish

A soldier going off to a war,

With words of the expectation of return

A rainbow in the mist and sun,

Saying no more floods.

A promise, each made with deceit, love

Hope and Faith.

Promises 2016-32

How many times have we promised something to someone? How many times have we done so, with the knowledge we will not fulfill the promise? This is a common trait in life and one thing that is usually forgiven if we do not keep the promise; or is it forgiven? It depends on the promise and the person we made the promise to, I would guess……

 

I think of the times I promised my God that I would do this or that if He would do something in particular, but did I do what I promised Him eventually?; don’t know or will not say…

Hope? 2016-31

I think of this question as a child asking “Why?”, where there is NO answer at times when the word is asked. I am aware of how life happens and what we CAN hope for, yet fully understand that, at times,  the reality will probably not occur. I understand this, but “I still hope!…….

Hope is just a word, for some to just think,

But it is a feeling of something to hold on to,

To give us some peace in our mindset of life,

And make us believe in other than strife……..
