Hope

We must hold onto hope
It can get us through the
Hard times. Love heals and
Mends the things that seem

Unmendable. Sometimes
The world leaves us with
Scars and maybe those scars
Won’t ever go away. But when

We have the courage to share
Our hearts with others it can
Leave new marks on our skin
Like beautiful tattoos that cover

The ruins of old wounds. Compassion
Is reborn from compassion. It rises
From the ashes of cold, dark nights
And brings warmth to lonely hearts

We are capable, and we are strong
We are brave, kind, and rare. Each of
Us is one of a kind with our own scars,
Our own beauty, our own light to shine.
