Hope

HOpe

You need to understand why hope means so much to me to understand me
Hope is who I am
Hope is what I am
Because I haven't even begun to uncover or scratch the surface on what I will become
I hope
Because I fear I may be a failure
I hope
Because I feel lost
I hope
Because I believe in love
I hope
Because I believe in more than what I can see, feel, touch, taste or hear
I hope
I hope because of something innate, something inside
I hope because I know I am not the center of the universe
I hope because there is more at work in the universe than I will ever know
And I'm completely alright with that.
I hope because it allows me to accept the fact that I don't know
I hope because I embrace the fact that I don't know
I hope because it gives me a connection to possibility
I hope because I can
I hope

My dreams are large
You must know this about me
If my dreams die, I die
I will not live in a world where I cannot dream
Where I cannot have faith
Where I cannot hope

There is so much -- infinite time, love and space --
That is beyond any and all of us
The most brilliant minds in the history of man kind, collectively
Know less than can be held on the tip of a pinhead
In the grand scheme of the universe

Discovery is a wide berth
We can choose to be open to it
Or close a section off and say,
"There it is."
And by closing that section off,
We are closing off possibility, discovery and hope.

I will not close off hope.

Hope is all
And I open myself to it.
