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.

Cherish The Times

Cherish each of the moments you live

And live to cherish the moments lived.

For it is but a short time given to all, within which

To embrace the gift in all its dimensions,

And make the best of the precious opportunity.

Rather than squander it in the hopelessness

Of despair and self-doubt, nay don ye the vest of

Steadfast courage and resolve undeterred to

Triumph and soar with the eternal winds of hope

Towards the promise of the fullness of life.

Therefore, my friend, minimize regret . . .

Love life, live free, be kind, and  live well.
