Poem: Keeping Hope

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Keeping Hope" is a poem about how things don't always go as one plans.

Life is not always an easy street, but one should keep his spirits high.

Never give up on one's dreams.

Keep hoping no matter what obstacles you face.

"Le Roux - Nobody Said It Was Easy"

Keeping Hope

She didn’t expect the twists and turns,

those little surprises that rear their ugly head,

as she awoke on this beautiful day.


But hey, that’s life,

why would it go

any other way?


She’s never been on easy street,

she’s crossed more detours than anyone deserves,

but her spirit doesn’t wane.


She anxiously looks forward to a new day

hoping to see a rainbow,

bringing her one step closer

to unlocking her dreams.

When the world says,

"Give Up",

Hope whispers,

"Try it one more time."

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

We all have dreams. Moments in life where we strive to achieve our goals.

Our fellow Hubber, Dream On, has recently touched upon the struggles we face each day.

We try hard but they still seem so far out of reach. Sometimes it's like taking one step forward only to go two steps backwards.

Maybe it's God's way of telling us to enjoy the journey. There is no need to be in such a rush.
