Changes of Life ( a poem of greatest hope)

Updated on June 11, 2016
When all seems so hard to overcome...
When all seems so hard to overcome...


Although new events to come from a darker horizon, we seem unable to cope,

We all must draw from what we hold inside us, faith, indomitable of spirit, hope.

When tomorrows appear hard to overcome, we've reached the end of our rope,

Just take a look about us, at others hardships, our own to seem smaller in scope.


When life seems impossible, remember those who've written...our inspiration,

Shakespeare, Kipling, Keller, and Twain, greatest authors held in adoration.

When rising tides threaten us, many who've gone before us, their dedication,

Tolstoy, Dickens, Wilde and Shaw, words of wisdom, each admired quotation,

We must draw from other's words of wisdom to help us through the hardships at times...
We must draw from other's words of wisdom to help us through the hardships at times...


When all seems lost, none to lead, we must then consider how others to succeed,

Sometimes our nature causes us too late to heed, to assess in an hour of need.

Waiting till we are overcome, too late to act, must the time be perfect, to be exact,

As we see wrongs, to turn the other way, unbacked, avoid consequences, as fact?


We must stand up for one another in times of need...
We must stand up for one another in times of need...


What would Washington, Jefferson,Hamilton. Franklin to say, of our actions today,

Emerson, Thoreau, Bradbury, Hemingway, all grand inspirers in their own way?

Has the country regressed so much, reflects bad attitudes, not based on as such,

Should we ever forget, or use as a crutch, those before us, forever lose touch?

Where there is a glimmer of light...there is hope...
Where there is a glimmer of light...there is hope...


Magnificent gifts, grandest benevolence each of us are given, Life's precious air,

These to provide for the future, our beloved, to show our affection, that we care.

We must all strive to improve our lives, so that all thrives, wonderful fruits to bear,

This world, its people are one, human kind... everything upon this earth we share.

All as one...human kind, and this world to be shared...
All as one...human kind, and this world to be shared...

      Yes, we DO share everything, and we must remind ourselves that nobody should have to bear their crosses alone.

      Thank you my friend. My grandfather was a wonderful pastor for more than fifty years. Much that I believe about religion and our creator comes from him.I still remember joining him on the piano as he played "Bringing in the Sheaves"and "Go Tell It on the Mountain".All greatly influenced my life. whonu
