Hope

We all have a different interpretation of what the word hope means to us.

To want something to happen or to be true, and usually have a good reason to think that it might

The Cambridge dictionary definition of hope.
So I’ve decided to think about what the word Hope means to me.

Hope is the ability to see the silver lining in one’s darkest moments.
Hope is about having the strength to hold on to a belief that no matter how scary and overwhelming life can be at times -we can get through those moments because we have done before.
Hope is holding into the belief that we can get better. We can grow and achieve our goals, dreams, and become the person we want to or aspire to be.
We all find different meanings in words. There is no wrong answer. 

I decided to start writing ✏️ down words that I associate with the word Hope

  • Here is 3-minute Acrostic poem I wrote about hope 🙏

    H ear heavenly angels descent.
    O pen ears; wings in full flight.
    P assion stirred; Fears dissolve.
    E motions soar; new day begun.

    Willful wrong

    (a stream of consciousness  borderline poem unrevised) 

    Whilst fleeing from the echoes of ‘you were in the wrong’. The Screws twist torture upon entering her 4th chamber.

    Inside her bloody mind. Dried & pressed between her breasts

    Leaves, stained by painting the roses red.

    Long live to leave the Queen of Hearts

    Lovers lost: Lovers found -past & tense -future is uncertainty abound.

    Forever locked in a  gaze with the  omniscient eyes of Janus

    Uncalculated, her actions motivated by too much heart. Unruly emotions betrayed her by treason. Penelope, she is not for a reason.

    Lost to thoughts in solitude until reunited with like-minded misfits caught up in the cycles we call seasons.

     

    * Inspiration for Acrostic poetry word ‘willful’ came from how some people describe me & I wrote this cos the one person I thought would “get” how complicated relationships are (didn’t). #write to recover and keep me sane.

     

    willful

    adjective

    will·​ful | \ ˈwil-fəl \
    variants: or wilful

    Definition of willful

    1: obstinately and often perversely self-willed a stubborn and willful child

    Good Grief

    Grief it churns out carbon dioxide

    Thoughts lead by military force

     

    Grief it strikes you across your cheek

    If you dare ignore the ones hurt by your defeat

     

     

    Grief it conjures a body to sway against life’s tide

    Grief is tics revealed by neurosis

     

    Call it the quacks to lead us to another direct line

    You will be just fine

     

    Shift a bit in the corner

    Let it leave our hearts

    For a retrieval

    A chance to shine

    Turn to this moment.

    March forwards to a beat instilling a sense of playful footwork to the dance of living by being.

      Writers Digest

    Starry Intentions forgotten -blamed the sidereal;
