The Birth of Hope!

Hope, Word, Letters, Scrabble

When a faint ray of light trickles into the darkness

when a tender green sprouts amid the barren wilderness

when an understanding hug greets your failure

when a soothing touch strokes your bruised body

when a sweet smile welcomes you back home

when a helping hand pulls you out of an abyss

when words of encouragement goad you to carry on

when a child’s innocent laughter shatters the silence of the cry

when you see an act of humanity in trying conditions


Hope is born and

life becomes beautiful once again.

    Your poetry on hope, gives hope to many in despair. Small gestures, could go a long way in giving hope to an injured soul.

  2. Superbly expressed, R, these delicate feelings. Yes, there’s hope yet and your beautiful examples promise the beginning of a new dawn. Because hope shapes tomorrow. And diehard optimists like you and me live in anticipation, in hope of sunshine touching every living being – equally and copiously.
