Have you ever sat in the calm of the morning and taken in a sunrise?
Have you ever hummed a Melody that lifted your spirits right up?
Have you ever, in moments of despair, felt a gentle touch, a soft pat?
Have you ever, when you had lost faith, felt guided and shown the path?
My friend, if you have experienced any or all of the above,
If you have been to the brink of nothing and pulled back,
If you were able to stand at a threshold and decide your path;
Then rest assured, for you know what hope feels and looks like.
Hope is not just a feeling, it is an emotional catharsis.
It is a therapeutic herb that soothes our frayed nerves.
It is a blessed boon that holds us when we are falling apart.
It is a tenet, a belief, a Creed that guides in our darkest moments.
So my friend, if you ask me if I have seen hope, what it looks like?
I would say, it is the sunrise every morning, the warmth of which I bask in.
It is the languid breeze of the day that cools and steals my sweaty defeat.
It is the twinkling stars of the night that wink be into restful slumber.
Yes! that is what hope looks like to me..
