To see hope

Is there hope in this world?
Isn’t there hope?
Perhaps I should look closer
At the leaves dancing in the wind
At the garden that withers and blooms again
And again;
Or the majestic trees golden and littered with the last of their green and red
Or even farther to the birds soaring in the sky
The sky, surely there must be hope in the sky
Or am I destined to use this power god has graced me with
This vision that eludes so many.
To see only the plight of the world
The distraught faces of the poor,
The sick,
The weak,
Are my eyes destined to behold only that which is viciously wrong with this universe.
Perhaps, perhaps…
My vision is a curse or perhaps that is what my god intended
To see, to imagine the hope that can save these lost souls
In my desperate attempt to find hope, that word, that simple four letter word,
Perhaps this is my journey
And the hope that lies in my soul
Will never die
And perhaps it is destiny that I see hope in tragedy
And not until my dying day,
Until the last breath of life has escaped my lips
Will I ever let go of the hope
That the salvation of the world is attainable
That hope is all we truly have ever had.
That hope is in the faces all around us
That hope will sustain us
And hope; will finally set me free.
