Hope

Having Hope

I sat next to Desperation

A familiar companion keeping me company when I had no one else

Then I saw Hope, ever-elusive but beckoning to me from afar

To be with Hope I would have to first embrace Willingness

Desperation has a way of making Willingness more attractive

And with Willingness, Hope drew closer, almost within reach

But as Desperation receded, so did my sweet Willingness

Complacency became my new bedfellow

Pain had always been my catalyst for change

Without the first, I did not think the other was possible

But that was a lie

Could I have Willingness without Desperation?

Must I feel Pain before I can have Relief?

Can I give up Misery and Suffering to stand with Hope?

While I am occassionally visited by Desperation but I no longer require that relationship to walk with Willingness

When I put Willingness before all else, Hope becomes attainable

Today, I have Hope.
