Never Let Go of Hope

Poet: Jancarl Campi

One day
you will see
that it all
has finally come together.

What you have
always wished for
has finally come to be.

You will look back
and laugh at what has passed
and you will ask yourself,
"How did I get through all of that?"

never let go of hope.
never quit dreaming.
never let love
depart from your life.

Let this poem, The Pessimist, remind you to never lose hope, to never adopt the pessimist point of view! We all have a choice in life, pick an optimistic point of view and always have confidence that changes or circumstances will improve.

The Pessimist
Poem written by an Unknown Poet

The pessimist's a cheerless man;
To him the world's a place
Of anxious thoughts and clouds and gloom;
Smiles visit not his face.

Though brightest sunshine floods the earth,
And flowers are all ablow,
He spreads depression where he can
By dismal tales of woe.

The pessimist's a hopeless man,
He's full of doubt and fear;
No radian visions come to him
Of glad days drawing near.

The pessimist's a joyless man,
He finds no sweet delight
In making this a happier world,
In fighting for the right

He views the future with alarm
He sees no light ahead;
Most wretched of all men is he,
Because his hope is dead.

Poet:  Max Ehrmann

Deny me all the good of earth —
All joy and soul-rebounding mirth,
All weajth and rank and love's great days;
But leave one thing by which to cope
With ebbing life's dim evening rays —
Leave me but hope.

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers
A Famous Poem by Emily Dickinson

"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I've heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

My Weakness
Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2012

In my weakness I am strong, for it is not I;
What I have I do not own, even should I try.
Born a pauper, not born free - having no control;
No concept of whom I am, searching in my soul.

Weary of my constant toil, what do I achieve?
Daily it's the same routine; hardships never leave.
Life is puzzling at its best, nothing is secure,
All my efforts seem in vain; trials to endure.

Why I do the things I do I can't understand,
Unseen powers are my source, I'm at their command.
Still small voices in my head, prod me, drive me on:
There's a purpose in your life, hope is never gone.

Remember now, in days of youth, you are not your own;
Tread in paths of righteousness, never walk alone.
All my strength is still minute if God does not bless,
If I prosper, by His grace, then I must confess:

God is sovereign, God is just, I am but of clay,
Daily I rely on Him, He's my hope and stay.
