Hope

Hope is the sacrifice of doubt for effort
-toward an effort not seen by mortals
-toward an end that begins again
Oh, dust it off now and again
Shake its dark glittering surface to the sun and say,
“I believe despite the distance.
I abandon comfort and reward now for greater gifts.
I believe I trust I hope
For I have prayed earnestly
The answer was not removal of the burden
But comfort
But hope
But love
And for this I rise again and again
