Hope Poems

Uplifting Poems About Hope

Having hope propels us to achieve our dreams and drives us forward toward our pursuits. It also keeps us afloat when everything seems to go wrong, when we feel that we're drowning. Hope is the light at the end of the tunnel, the northern star by which we navigate our lives through trials and difficulties towards our dreams of a better day. When we lose hope, we are like a rudderless ship being tossed about without direction. Having and finding hope, then, is essential for keeping our dreams upright and continuing to sail in the direction of their attainment.

The look in her eyes,
Depicts courage
Despite the uncertainty
In the once blue sky.

Days turn to night,
And Greenland turns
To desert....

Today another tragedy in the news,
Senseless violence from people with nothing to lose.
Never once thinking about the destruction and pain,
Instead only focused on placing the blame.
