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.
