(Feeling) Hopeful

When you’re working to bring your
dreams to life,
hope is a commodity.
The work is necessary.
Action mandatory.
Wishes and prayers and crossed fingers don’t
deliver without tiny steps forward.
Hope seems foolish.

But the value of hope must not be discounted.

Hope lifts you up and into action when
your energy flags.
Hope is the bright promise in your vision.
Hope is the planted seed of the
dream you’re creating.
Hope is the light in your tunnel.
Hope is your lifeline on the sea.

Do the work.
Feel the hope.
Create the dream.
