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.

      Yes indeed! Thanks for the perspective I totally agree. Some days, it may feel like you have no more faith left in you. But hope? Even when you think it’s gone, it’s still there. Pushing you to live for another day. Let’s keep hoping and believing
