Hope’s Hope

Hold not to the regret of yesterday

Rather in steadfast measure,

Cling to the promise of tomorrow.

For what futility of purpose does it serve,

To descend immobile, into the abyss of remorse

Yearning for what was lost or has not been,

More despair, in the company of bleakness.

Shake off the miserable melancholy and reverse

That energy into earnest utility, and towards

The unbridled optimism within the sphere of hope.

Liberty’s Vision

For the chance to be that which I have in me …

To be unique in the expression of that which is endowed to each

Is the quest inherently innate to all that journey through the mystic.

The unbridled chance to embark upon a course unencumbered by inimical

Restraints of prejudice, colonization, and domination of whatever description.

The independence to embrace the birthright of freedom as responsible

Compass in the navigation of fair possibilities  available within the realm.

Still fully, understanding that liberty itself preserves the right, not privilege,

Of all, not some, to be and be free, without bondage’s imposition by others,

To exercise that which is inalienable, and embrace race, gender and creed,

While recognizing in the community for all people, certain agreed upon

Unifying and equitable principles are within the scheme that empowers one

Thus guaranteeing potential’s hope in full measure, yet assuring the dignity of all.
