When Hope Is Lost

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.


Week Seven Prompt - Hope

Brenda Arledge has given us a new prompt for week seven, which is “hope”. Life would be pretty miserable without hope. It may be to get that new job, hope your baby sleeps through the night or maybe hope that you will recover from an illness.

One thing about life is it is always changing. Good times and bad times come and go. We learn from our mistakes, and we typically strive to just have a good life along with our families. I have said for a long time that I can choose to be miserable or I can choose to be happy. I choose happiness!

What Is hope?

Hope gets up through tough times

Often we ask to God for help

Praying for our will to be done

Even as we pray for God’s help

Lost Love

Wake in the morning

Don’t know what to expect

One foot in front of the other

As I walk away from the bed

A bruised ego is painful

As I begged for a reprieve

My loved one is gone

My heart is so broken

I did not want to live alone

I thought it would last forever

Boy was I ever wrong

Nothing lasts forever

So live for the moment

Make a plan for the day

There is no second chance

Live to the fullest the first time


Lost Hope

I have lost my hope this day

He walked out the front door

I thought my lover would stay

He wanted to even the score

Dropping down to my knees

Tears flowed down my cheeks

He wouldn’t stay, I said please

Will I make it the next few weeks


School Girl

She left for school extra early

She has a science test today

She studied hard last night

Hoping to do well she did pray

Hope For That Job

Off to the interview I go

I want this job so badly

I have my resume with me

I hope to head home gladly


Hope gets us through tough times

Often we ask to God for help

Praying for our will to be done

Always we pray for God’s help
