The Birth Of Hope

     If there was ever a day to talk about hope, it would be Monday.  Almost everyone has hope on Monday. We hope the week goes by quickly, (wishing our lives away 5 days at a time) we hope for our work day to go smoothly,(as if they ever do) we hope for the hangover(physical or mental) to disappear. And the usual; we hope our family and friends will be safe and healthy, to win the lottery, world peace and other issues of importance to each of us in our lives.

     But without hope, there aren’t any bright days, only a seemingly endless supply of dark days full of despair,  foul temperament and negative attitudes. Personally, I’ll take the positivity that hope has to offer and eschew the negative. Where there is life, there is hope!

     I HOPE that we all have a bright and positive Monday,

Jake.

The Birth Of Hope

With the dawn

of a new day

with a thought

of a new way

or a sprout

in the spring

the fledgling

on wing

all signal

the birth of hope.

For without it

we’re doomed

to a life

of sheer gloom

feeling never

the light

seeing only

the night

and with darkness

e’er must we cope.
