What do you think of
when you hear the word hope?
What do you see? feel?
You could answer innumerable ways.
Hope can mean many different things
to each and every person.
Each has their own picture,
a symbol of what it means to them.
Hope is like a phoenix
rising from the ashes
in a beautiful raging
blaze of fire.
Hope is the dawn of a new day
as the sun stretches out her light tot he world.
It is warm like sunshine
and beautiful when it reflects off snow.
A person's heart may be full of compassion and love,
though it may have been filled
with ice from the cold of night.
But because of hope it is now full of light.
Hope is like a rose
that is very tender and beautiful.
Hope is also like a violet,
for it is delicate and fragile.
whether a little or a lot,
does a great amount for us.
It revives our spirits and our dreams.
It could continue to write,
to tell you what hope is to me
for hope is beautiful and special
but you need to decide for yourself
what it means to you.
