Hope Poem

Healing And Recovery

This poem was inspired by the current state of our union. In my opinion, we have drifted apart socially, and we have moved into a very dark place. But I believe there is hope. I think this country is big enough for all of us to live, thrive, and enjoy. But it will take work.

It Will Take Work

We can get back what we lost.
We can replenish the treasure taken.
We can enjoy a better way.
But it will take work.

It will take willing minds.
It will take searching hearts.
It will take a healing theme.
But it will take hard work.

We must see with different eyes.
We must hear with cleared ears.
We must touch with more sensitive hands.
But it will take very hard work.

We can see the sun again.
The roses will grow and bloom again.
The home can be made safe again.
But it will take massive work.

The words we speak should be true.
The actions we take should uplift.
The motive we adopt must be pure.
But it will take unselfish work.

I like the build up of the amount of work and the way it then finishes with unselfish work. Very nice parallelism. Inspirational message as well.

Thank you, Ron, for taking the time to leave a comment.
