THE MIRACLE OF HOPE


Out of the black primeval mud
God made a living man,
He gave him soul; so that he would
Aspire to be human.

But doomed without a guiding light,
He wandered here and there.
Chaos, evil, blinded sight,
No goals, no aims, nowhere.

God saw the darkness of his soul,
He promised to do more,
He wanted his creation whole,
Not rotten to the core.


Hope is what the human needs,
Hope in things to come,
Hope that views a future good,
Hope to take us home.


When darkness clouds the souls of men,
No peace; our spirits roam
To find the hand of God again
And show the path to home.


We need to walk in faith, my friends,
And trust God knows that we
Will always need the hope he gives
Until eternity.

Hope tears the veil of doubt away,
It builds upon his grace;
In faith we walk a holy way,
Toward Godís most caring face.

beautiful. I love reading poety with such depth.

I'm not a poet myself (just wait until I decide to write one for the challenge and you'll see), but I started out on this one feeling awkward and a little lost. As the poem drew me in, though, towards the middle I finally began to catch the meter and feel the pace. By the end I was fully engrossed and pratically absorbing it rather than just reading it. I made me think of the way our relationship with God progresses. I'm not sure that was what was intended, but that's how it worked for me.

Your poem gives hope and reminds us that without it we are lost. The rhythm keeps our mind focussed on what you are saying and draws us into your mood.
