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.

Fear’s Intrusion (Part I)

Vicious is the apparatus of fear…

For it descends upon you with such awful might

Either in stealth manner or by insidious descent

Then in persistent measure seeks to erode, should one

Permit it to take permanent abode within one’s essence,

The body of hope that ought to propel each one

Into the absolute realm of possibility and beyond despair.

Reject the albatross!

Too Precious To Waste

The worth of one’s life is beyond the estimation of time

Live and embrace the full quantum of each moment.

Contentment’s Motivation

Do not sacrifice the laurels you earned
Through hard work and sweat equity
For want of dreams that have not yet
Come to pass, rather treasure that
Which reflect the reward of your earnest
Effort, and use them without any reservation to
Motivate and propel you to the goal of enriching
Your gift of life and that of others, and therefrom
Find contentment, which in itself will supplant
The void of unrealized dreams with hope
Which in time will yield the bounty of peace.

Recalibration Required

It is but not a failing to embrace new things
In the quest to advance forward in life…
For when we hit that point, in this terrain
Where the winds of the challenge remain
Steadfast in their determination to incite
Discontent and lack of tranquility, and
Old plans, which otherwise work, yield
No momentum towards progress, then
My friend, it is time for introspection towards
Full recalibration and the utilization of new strategies,
To transcend that which appeared to be immutable.
At this juncture, take heed to adapt, and
Not rely solely on what worked in the past,
Which may not have the power to see you
Through the current turbulent storm.
Rather with courage, try something new
For there is victory in realizing the futility of
The plans that no longer bear fruit.

Refocused

Focus not on lost opportunities,

Rather, focus on the new promise

Yet existing in the present, and

The hope still contained in the future.

Positively Stubborn

Adamantly refusing to give up on one’s dreams

But pursuing them, despite the challenges

Or difficulties, that in unrelenting manner, stand

As sentry to prevent the valiant effort of dedication

On the path forward, and attempt to submerge hope

Within the looming and treacherous valleys of despair,

And yet, refusing to lie vanquished, the determined spirit

Still persistently pursuing that which it yearns to achieve,

Negotiating no alternative but committed steadfastness,

Is a commendable positively stubborn attribute that all must

Endeavour to embrace and strive to earnestly uphold, to

Guard one through the rugged terrain of life, to the victorious

Plains of never giving up for want of those dear and personal dreams.
