Hope Unashamed

It knocks unexpectedly and whispers into raging silence.
Hope offers subtle surprises.

Paralyzed by all that isn’t right in the world; when I don’t know what the next step is.
Hope sets the frozen in motion.

Bubbling up when every day has been the same for months and time is not my friend.
Hope changes the overflow.

There’s a seed on the inside that sprouts joy in the face of impossible odds. There’s an intuitive knowing that something good, right and true is coming even though it isn’t yet revealed.
Hope reverses doubt.

I don’t know what to do with it or how to manage it but instead I let it sit beside me; a companion that gives me strength.
Hope lights a dark night.
