Hold on to your hope; for hope is the leaven that bakes the bread of your expectation – Jacqueline
Even when my breath falters in trepidation
hope burgeons within my soul.
For the spirit of light
must outshine the pitch of darkness
and the strength of love
bends the hopeless state of hatred.
Our Hope in humanity must arise
even in the midst of dire crisis.
Giving up hope is as good as giving up breathing because each day that we live, we are faced with challenges that require the strength of our hope, faith and courage to get through.
Sometimes dire situations can cause us to become despondent, however, there are various ways of holding on to your hope whilst you walk through a situation. One can’t just roll over and give up. We’ve got to keep holding on to hope, walking our way through, for no circumstance is permanent.
