Hope, Hope-less


I hope

I have hope

People will be kinder

People will love more

People will share with others

I hope


But the news is full

Of happenings that

Cause me to hope - less

People take out frustration

And anger on people they

Don't know -- they shoot

a gun, drive a car

into a crowd

People smash windows

And doors to steal

Whatever they can carry


And I hope - less and less


What can help me hope - more


A group of young people

Shovel the driveways of

Senior citizens after a

Snowstorm --

I have hope


A synagogue is set on fire

And burns to the ground

The church down the street

Offers their fellowship

Building to the

Congregation for the Friday

Evening Shabbat

Service


There is hope


A car goes into a lake and

The driver is trapped

Passerby witness the accident

And rush to the driver's aid


I hope more
