Headline Poem 9/10/14 -- It's our hope

Tonight's poem is a song, based on a combination of headlines -- beheadings, missing people, and survivors reaching out to other survivors in many realms. 💛

It's our hope  

There are times 
when 
I feel myself emerging,
darkness and light singing 
all at once. 
Inside, 
we filter what we challenge, 
we muster 
courage from our 
balance, and 
we abide. 
It's not easy. 
It's not smooth. 
It feels rough 
around the edges,
and in between the queues. 
But it's a life line,
when we feel it. 
When it happens,
it's called hope,
and it matters,
and it listens, 
and it snuggles 
while we mope. 
It's our life line, 
when we feel it. 
When it happens, 
it's our hope. 
It's our hope.
