Hope

HOPE

 

I have hope

I have prayer

I believe what I need is

Definitely out there

 

I have heart

I have soul

I am smart

It takes its toll

 

I can almost breathe

Loosen the hold

My claws I sheath

I know I am too bold

 

I am in the moment

I hear birdsong

The sun’s ray sap me like a vent

But I still belong

 

It is a little after nine

I feel and look fine

I will not pine 

For what cannot be mine.

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
