Poems about Hope

hope-knows-no-fear-640

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.

- Sri Chinmoy

Hope is not a momentary flicker.
Hope is Eternity’s slow, steady,
Illumining and fulfilling height.

Hope is my mind’s secret fear.
Hope is my heart’s sacred courage.
Hope is my life’s daring experience.
Hope is my soul’s illumining success
And fulfilling progress.
Hope is my Lord’s ascending Perfection
And my Lord’s transcending Satisfaction.

Hope
Is kind.
Therefore
I mix with hope.
Hope
Is swift.
Therefore
I run with hope,
Hope
Is brave.
Therefore
I collect boundless strength
From hope.
Hope
Is sincere.
Therefore
I invite hope
To accompany me
To the Golden Shore.

Hope, my pilot-star, hope
I have seen your face.
I have felt your heart.
Therefore
In ignorance-night
I shall no more grope.
Hope, my pilot-star, hope
You are humanity’s peerless rope
For human souls to climb
God’s transcendental height.

- Sri Chinmoy

Sweet is my hope.
Pure is the life of my hope.
With my sweet hope
I try to reach the higher worlds.
With my pure hope
I try to fathom my inner worlds.
But alas,
In neither way do I succeed.
I fail,
I miserably fail.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

O my hope,
Where are you?
Can you not see me
Inside the despair-grave?
O my hope,
Where are you?
Can you not grant me someday
The helmet of protection
And the crown of satisfaction?
Hope, my hope!

- Sri Chinmoy

~

Hope is not an idle term.
Hope is the reality that can and does reveal itself to us at God’s choice hour.
To hope is to know the secret of achievement.

- Sri Chinmoy
