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.

    Overcoming Fear In Life

    I've always viewed life from the side lines,
    Just watching it passing me by,
    In the past too afraid to just let go and live,
    And lately too tired to try.
