The Anchor of my Soul

They say hope is the anchor of the soul 
What hope? What soul?

I dig deep within myself to find said hope 
Some days, I come alive
Other days,  I come up short
I look around and I see fantasies of life
The comparison life
The life I want, not need 
So hard to get there
Though it always seems near 
That isn't hope  

I dig deeper
There is pain and hurt I never knew existed
Identifying them has brought me some healing
Yet there is something more

I dig even deeper
There is my childhood self
The one with immense imagination, trust, and hope in the unseen
Life made me lose myself
But I am going to win 
This is hope 
This is life

No matter what, I must keep going
No matter what, I must keep growing
No matter what, I must keep thriving

I call out: 
"Come forward out of the dark, little one
You are made for greatness
The hope you once had, it is here 
Take it with you and live."

As I crawl forward
I feel free

As I walk forward
I feel real

As I run forward 
I feel light

As I sprint forward 
I feel life

As I fly forward
I feel hope

I have found myself
I am alive

I have found hope 

That Hope is the Anchor of my Soul

Because of hope, I did not give up on my dreams. 
Because of hope, I did not break under the weight of oppression and depression.
Because of hope, I continued to look up. 
Because of hope, I kept my dream alive. 

Because of my undying hope in God, 
I know I am here for a reason and a purpose. 
I know He favors me. 
I know that I am exactly where I need to be.
