My pessimistic friend says that I am a joke
That I am too optimistic because I am called Hope.
We were once ‘one’ before but he made a choice one day
To remove me from his life, now he lives in a hope-less way.
He blames me for the pain and misery he suffers from all the time.
I have tried to tell him to change because his choices are his, not mine.
You see I am what is considered a good thing
I have lost count of the many joys and anticipated blessings I bring.
There are so many people that look forward to a brighter day
So I am constantly called upon to show them the way.
I work hand in hand with a wonderful loyal dedicated friend
His name is Faith and he is strong, resilient and does not bend.
All good things come in threes so I am told
That probably explains why we have a third partner who is so glorious and bold.
He is the greatest of the three of us, full of passion and so strong
There is nothing He cannot do, and when you repent He forgives your every wrong.
His name is Love and He is truly the Great of great
Our mission: I, Hope, have Faith and with Love, we operate.”
The poem Hope is taken from the novel ‘Despite All Odds: A Dream Fulfilled Part I’ published by GLL Publishing
