Hope is that thing that starts as a leak of light into the heart…..
A shift, an oh-so-slight change of feeling.
Like the first crack of dawn that comes over the horizon.
And even though the bleakness is still there, you feel that it may not
Always be so.
Sometimes it’s a momentous event that changes everything suddenly,
And sometimes it’s what you read in a book when you realize that
Someone else on earth has felt or is feeling exactly what you feel.
Then you think, well, if they came through it then certainly I can too.
