Hope Heals

When all else is gone,

hope still lives.

It is the one thing

that can never

be taken away

by anyone,

unless you let them.

It is the smile of a child,

who has not yet learned despair.

It is the sun rising bright,

every day,

shaking off the dark of night.

Hope is a muscle as strong

as the heart still beating.

It is the best,

deep within each of us,

waiting to be born anew.

Hope is the balm to our souls.

Hope heals...

Hey, Thank you both!

@Elizabeth, Karla is a friend on Twitter and she is part of the duo who inspired this poem. I have a link to their site, I believe, right below yours.
