Selected poems on hope

 

Hope abides; therefore I abide.
Countless frustrations have not cowed me.
I am still alive, vibrant with life.
The black cloud will disappear,
The morning sun will appear once again
In all its supernal glory.

For human souls to climb

Sweet is my hope.
Pure is the life of my hope.

I try to fathom my inner worlds.

But alas,
In neither way do I succeed.
I fail,
I miserably fail.

I live in the hope of fulfilling
And manifesting Him.
I live, I live.

O my hope

O my hope,
Where are you?

Inside the despair-grave?

Can you not grant me someday
The helmet of protection
And the crown of satisfaction?
Hope, my hope!
