The Power of Hope


The Power of Hope



Do not become the penitent butterfly that changed its form too soon.


It’s better to picture the fulfillment of dreams

before taking that first flight.


Use the beneficial impulse to smile 

to prop up our fragile fate.


Trusting the why of things once started rough.

Weed-filled ground can become

a tidy distribution of fresh flowers, sun-kissed and high.


Embracing the positive turn,

the ready truth of the plenty release of love.


Choosing the greatest option,

from all choices of good, better, best,

with nothing lower.


We too can manage the soar.


The power of hope,

make it infinite,

make it passionate,

and then give great thanks for your transformation.
