Where Is Hope?

8 Jun

Where Is Hope?

I.

Hope lies limp

in the arms 

of mercy’s angel.

She wipes the brow

and cleans the wounds

and listens for a breath.

II.

Hope gathers force ,

lives strong

among those who

have lost the most.

III.

Our hope 

rests on thoseq

we have despised.

They are our hope.
