Hope – One Size Fits All

HOPE. what one word can describe, such a thing as this
That represents the reason, mankind has to exist,
We wake each day; we work and play; we hold on in the night,
To just a little or a lot of-that which brings us light.
HOPE.is highly overrated; some folks seem to say,
While others underrate it with feelings of dismay,
Yet still today; we cannot stray, from all that hope can bring,
Do we really grasp that it's what causes hearts to sing?
HOPE. could it be that one size, really truly does fit all,
Every single size - shape - color - creed or name to call?
Oh yes, it's true, no doubt at all, the only thing on earth,
That fits and looks quite perfect. the fragrance of new worth.
HOPE. how can we then acquire, such a thing as this?
Could hope be bought or bartered, or captured in a wish?
Oh no, it's something far more precious, money cannot buy,
Nor can magic or sweet dreams. cause hope in us to fly.
HOPE. came in the beginning from almighty God above,
When He created all that lives, through words of endless love,
Oh yes, He was the one who first breathed life into the night,
Gave new hope to all the world, turned darkness into light.
HOPE. not a word to be misused, not frivolous or trite,
One that stands right next to love, sweet peace & wisdom. might,
Indeed the most important word, to know eternal life,
One size fits all, who will believe, and place their trust in Christ.
