What is Hope?

The mysterious light at the end
Of the tunnel?

A couple strolling
Down a dirt road
Holding hands
On their way home?

Hugs freely given?
A single rose
On your wooden kitchen table?

A young girl
Pushing her younger brother
On a park swing?

A rainbow
On a stormy day?

“I love you” scribbled
On a wrinkled napkin
In your lunch bag?

A chalk drawing
On the sidewalk?

The view from a mountain top?

I don’t know what hope is
Exactly, but I do know this:

Find hope. Find it.

Grasp it.
Cling to it.
Protect it.

Don’t let anyone take
away your hope.
