You are the Editor (Hope Poems)


Life Is A Fire Burning

Even when your world is blind
With oceans of atrocities
Even when nothing seems to hint
An iota of hope,
Open your eyes as if you cannot sleep
And heave and sigh as your heart
Palpitates
Knowing that life is a fire
Burning without ashes crumbling
And take a moment to seek His guidance
And make one forward leap
Towards your dreams
Kindle tiny lamps to light
Your journey, step by step
Break the hurdles like falling rain
Where dark, grey clouds abound
Never look back on yesterday
For there are many tomorrows
Waiting to break your fall.
