Hope Lives

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Romans 8:25 (NIV).

I’ve not yet seen
Peace on earth
Mankind can be mean

Hatred and bitterness
Mar the world
Hearts with hopelessness

Yet I have hope
Lives in my heart
Gives peace to cope

Promises of God
Heal humanity
Broken and flawed

May hope never die

    It is good that there always is a need for hope or we would think we need no promises.

  9. I do think that hope can help… as long as we don’t forget to act.
