H.O.W.Belief and Hope ;hand in hand they travel.

No matter where we are at in life we will always have decisions to make; some big ,some small.

Each decision so important to the way our lives will travel ;to the way our hearts and soul will shine.

No matter where we are in life belief and hope are so important !!!

I also believe we are all stars each one meant to shine so brightly ; we must also have hope that no matter how bleak our horizons seem we must always have hope for a better tomorrow.

What may seem one horrendous problem today will become another great lesson learnt tomorrow.

That long winding road

Simply flowing so freely

Belief and hope glow.

A tortuous world

So blessed is sweet light

Showing us the way.

x

Shine from each mountain

Fill each clear valley below

Life's sweet soothing balm.

x

Each river flows through

Those craggy terrains of life

Each brand new dawn shines.

Glistening waterfalls

Cascading with life's deep pulse

Courageous and clear.

x

Rushing emotions

Such wondrous excitement

Within our reach.

x

Such magical times

Reach out with belief and hope

A world of beauty.

x

Wondrous horizons

Magnetic and breathtaking

Inhale and savour.

A world full of hope

Full of glistening promises

Feel the great wonders.

x

So far yet so near

Oh so quaint and enchanting

A heart full of joy.

x

Your question poignant

To choose with great emotion

Listen to your heart.

x

Your answer so clear

Each heart and soul recognise

Emerge so peaceful.

That new dawn beckons

A sunset so magnetic

Ours to savour

x

Each bright beating heart

Reaching to heights never known

To believe to hope.

x

A warmth from within

Listen to find the answer

Your life oh so true.

Take time to listen

Flow into your tomorrows

Oh to love yourself.

Believe

to win will be your quest

never discard those who love

never turn your back

on those

who will unconditionally help you to shine.

Recognise virtues

learn to discard

each foul deed.

Like each star

we are born to shine

from high.

We are born to love

we are born to shine.

With each new day

a new vigor

a new bright light

a new you

stronger and

a light heart

to lead the way.

We learn to believe

We learn to hope

and we are the stars

the brightest of all;

so that others

may also

find their way;

so they may also

shine so bright.

Tell your story

tell the world

as they may then

follow you.

Belief and hope;hand in hand they travel.

Source

Pray for each heart

pray for each soul

pray for little ones to be protected

from pain

and from fear.

Find it in your heart to pray

with all your might

with all your love

with all your strength.

To pray in an unconditional wave of sincerity

How can we believe

how can we hope

if we do not

find the compassion

that lies so deep within us all.

Share that compassion with others who have lost their way

share from your inner being;

look through each dark deed

each ugly blemish

each horrific disability

and find the true self

find that star that is meant to shine

the star that lies deep within us all.

Teach from your own heart and soul

so that others may also learn that

Belief and hope; hand in hand they travel.

Well Eddie all I can say is that this poetry is awesome, thought-provoking and deeply inspiring. If we could all dig just a little bit deeper, get rid of the surface negativity and bring out the true spirit that is within us, to strive to bring out everything positive that we can and direct it onto all those who cry, are hurt, lonely, hungry etc, then what a changed world this would be.

I think your beautiful words and thoughts express this in such a meaningful way that poem seems to direct itself specifically to the reader - wonderful!!

Awesome + voted up!!

Eddy, I have taken the road less traveled so often it now appears to be a well-paved highway. Mistakes are just learning experiences. To never try because of fear of a mistake is to cheat oneself of life itself. I refuse to do that.

Have a great weekend my friend, and your poetry, as always, is lovely.

love,

billy

Belief and hope are very necessary in this world for all of us. If we have nothing to believe in, then there can be no hope. So shine on, Eddy, as you are a powerful soul in the game of life.

"Showing us the way." That is what your lovely poem does with all its thoughtful phrases and lessons. Of course nothing more powerful than prayer to see us through.

Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

P.S. I met a lovely woman from Wales, from Monmouthshire actually.
