Hope

Tiny flicker of hope,

so very fragile-

a tender blossom

cradled in my palm.

Protect it from the elements

of cynicism, self-doubt, and fear.


Guard it carefully,

keep it from others who may

snatch all hope from me.

When I am all alone,

I slowly open my fist

and peek at the promise

I hold so close to my heart.
