Still Having Hope for The Human Race

Source

When we are put to the test and endure negative thoughts, we feel like going against all odds and realize that the human experience is really worth it. Being born and exposed to different cultures made me sensitive to their fears and hopes. Our of nowhere I begin to listen to Ruchard and just getting inspired to write about this human race. Out of a simple word my mind starts thinking... what the human race is heading to...

Inspired by the Piano and The Inner Thoughts

Still Having Hope...

.


As my muse sits down and plays next to me... I start to write...

feeling the chills of the words becoming more than a state of mind

Blessed to be among excellent friends who care for others

when the time comes to represent the souls that could make wonders


.


Witnessing miracles that have no terrestrial explanation

In the time of need we are able to lend a hand with no hesitation

So touching when one of us is in dire danger

and several hearts join the share with a stranger... no more

.

Yes! Still having hope, no matter what

.


Following the keys to that piano man

I witness the most wonderful pouring of trustful hearts

Times when we are in need and suddenly money comes our way

A beautiful sign that all is not said and done for us... not yet!


We all want peace on this planet and yes we can

starting one by one we may change our fellow man

feelings of joy that surround us since life began

we should change ourselves and then we will see the light

.


If you feel excuses well within, then the devil is alive

negative thoughts to keep us from making big strides

If we help one another no matter what

the rewards will come tenfold with the bonus of a heart



By being a Hubber, you are already a especial one

meaning sharing, commenting and voting as high as you want

Still have hope in this human race

because what you read was really felt... and the seed has been sown...!

.....I remember, ironically, one young man at work, said to me once that hope was the denial of reality, and then I took the pacifier out of his mouth Joseph and said to him while wiping the snot from his nose - wait until you change your diapers kid and 'really' grow up and then you will see what hope and despair is all about - as always, dear friend you offer us 'poetic' food for thought and a reason to believe ....and carry on with another day ....... sending you good thoughts from me and daybreak over the lake in this first sunday in september - lake erie time 7:48am

Oh great Lord, you have showered us here with words of love, of generosity, and for all of humanity to wake up and smell the digital Java beans.

I've joined forces with you bro a while back, and have been creating a super hubbing team for folks to become much more empowered by our words today, "I built it into Pearltrees, many of our powerful hubs."

This is an immaculate poem to say the least bro, and you and I both know that this world will only change, one heart at a time, and so it is imperative to maintain this constant pulse of positive reflections outwards to the people as a online writer (hub writer), while we put out the wild fires digitally just as you, I, and Billybuc have been doing ever so slightly, but very effectively & countless others as well.

When the earth starts to quake, I bet us three will also be there to ban together to put it all back together, and this is the signs of not only a super hubber, but also a super human.

Thanks for being special Joseph, for being who you was made to be, and for sticking your own neck, and web reputation out there for the rest of us humans today.

Love your budd forever Cloud Explorer. (In a brotherly way)

Dear Joseph...This was such good timing... You are so right..negative thoughts only make us sick. I love this verse.

"Proverbs 16:24 — “Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”

If we speak negativity all the time, we only bring on more problems for our selves..I had a bought of sadness yesterday...thinking the world looked so grey but had a good talking to myself and things look a lot brighter if only in my mind. without hope we may as well pack it all up and call it a day..:)

God bless,

Sunnie

Thanks Sunnie. I swear there are days when the world becomes this 13 feet wall in front of us, and we want to call it quits, becuase humanly we can take so much, but there is something inside of us that make us closer to our maker. Reality is these words come as natural inspiration handed down to the pen. This cannot be just a miracle, is...what we can call it a will that is inside of us, a will to become better persons everyday. Thanks Kim!

Hi Epi, Hope is the reality against denial. We cannot sit inside our own shell and not realizing that the world is out there for us. Our hearts were created to feel and pump that love in all directions. Creation was not monotonous. Thanks for stopping by epi. and thanks for believing in us from the very first day!

This is beautiful Lord, and it is true, hope is not lost. Let us keep trusting and hoping, and keep those negative thoughts (although hard in these days) out of our minds, and love one another, and one by one, the world or at least the little world in which our sphere is located, will know love. We can do ALL things through Christ who stengthens us. Gob bless. Voted Way Up to the Heavens on this one. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Very thoughtful and meaningful Lord De Cross. Excellent to be honest. I wish men and women would turn more to the Lord personally. Greed, lust, and all these factors that bring negativity to the human race, yet, there is always someone that sparkles from the distance. We all need a little more faith and hope. We can create such a special place if we help one another.

Hi Faith Reaper, I support you thorughly, and even though I don't sound too religious, I have seen miracles and felt the presence of our Creator. There is no doubt he is following everybody's hearts. Amazing to be able to do that.Blows my mind just to think of it! Thanks for leaving such a heartfelt comment!

KJForce, kids are the most understanding human beings until they reaize they have to abide the their own society rules. Your Grandkids are truly an example. One time, my kid who was 11 yrs old heard about the Katrina Hurricane, went to his bedroom and came back with his piggy bank, a Pepsicola Bottle. "I do not want it. These people need it dad." And we donated the whole bottle that weighted around 10 pounds at least. My wife then took it to the local red cross. Amazing how we can change the world if we could act like them. Thanks KJ!

A thoughtful, inciteful poem. You say it so well and hopefully we will all act as best we can. God bless you.

Thanks BlossomSB. The time is right to change a bit. We cannot move the mountain, then we can climb it and see how we see the world from that top of evilness. Much appreciated for your words!

You are certainly right TheLyricwriter. The sad thing is that I personally see beggars on the streets. Some must've had bad luck or some just headed into self-destruction. We don't judge. Is just the problem out there that haunts us to a certain point. We can do so much, and we wish we could get others to join us. Thanks for sharing your thoughts TheLyricWriter

Hi Lord

"Witnessing miracles that have no terrestrial explanation

In the time of need we are able to lend a hand with no hesitation

So touching when one of us is in dire danger

and several hearts join the share with a stranger... no more"

This shows the love that the human heart is capable of. Problem is we let our minds get in the way.

Voted up and away!

Sharing

Take care :)

Awesome work, LDC. There is definitely still reason to hope as times continue to change and people begin to open their eyes. There are quite a few things that still need realizing, but we're on the right track.

CrazedNovelist, things can be easier if people come together. We still believe in our countrymen. You are so right, for being still young. Keep that spirit afloat!
