  1. Well I hope you’re happy. Tell him the truth about my past, you said. It’ll be fine, you said. Well you were wrong. He doesn’t want to see me anymore.

  2. It enters your heart a free flying bird with boundless opportunities inside you it stirs.
    It fills your body with lightness and flare tickles your imagination to go any where.
    Just to be, just to breathe, to share and to sing, to become anyone and to do anything.
    To run through the fields of the roses so blush and shed all those feeling inside you of rush.
    Stay open to feelings of love in your life and hope for your world each day and each night.
    On our wondrous journey of breathe we can see, we know what to choose and we know what to be.
    A hand on a shoulder, a hug in a heart, keeping it light we will do our part.
    The airiness of living in this magical place brings a multitude of miracles right to our face.
    Look in the mirror and study your eyes… the bountiful feeling of hope will arise.

  3. Hope is an evolutionary metaphor. Hope is a door cracked open, the Wheel of Fortune “Mystery Wedge” of ($10,000 or Bankrupt). Hope is giving onexelf over to mystery, to the unknown. Hope is saying, “I’m not omniscient, omnipotent, or any other Omni- for that matter”. Hope is futurist rather than a dead end. Hope is life not death. I’m for hope.

  4. He hoped he would come to hell ’cause he thought that would be the only place where his shame could disappear completely. He’d not done much. It was his thoughts that made him a sinner. Imagine yourself a sinner in heaven? It would not do, he thought, and lit the fuse.

  5. Hope is every beep from
    the bed side monitor
    telling you don’t worry
    you are alive

    Hope is every warm
    hand , grasping your
    clammy one in theirs
    willing you to live

    Hope is the look
    on your baby’s face
    when she sees you
    looking like hell in icu

    Hope is the fact that
    people put aside
    their lives to rush down to
    be at your side

    Hope is your spouse
    who jumps up
    at every groan and turn
    and helps you

  6. Sully was from Hope, Arizona; a town so small, it had not been included in the last census counts. As far as he knew, there was no population information for his community. He was already 20 years old and chomping at the bit to get out. He knew if he stayed, he’d never amount to anything, and he had big dreams. He sights were set on New York City, he wanted to experience city life and socialize with people of different nationalities and cultures; something he’d never be able to do in Hope. As the name of his town suggested, Sully was finished hoping. He was now ready to act.
