Fear is paralyzing
Like a python wrapped around your heart
Squeezing tighter
Trying to suffocate that little spark called hope.

Fear is dark and hollow
Like a cave
Trying to swallow
That little spark called hope.

Fear is oppressive
Like a raging storm
Trying to drown
That little spark called hope.

Hope is like a bird of prey
That eats snakes for its meal
Giving you the strength and courage
To go on and to heal.

Hope is like the sunshine,
Warm in its embrace.
Illuminating darkness
Brightening the smallest place.

Hope is like the wind
Moving gently through the trees
Blowing away your worries
So you can be at peace.

God give me hope.

*Glory be . . .

Amen.

*For those of you who don’t know the Glory Be it is as follows:

Glory be to the Father
And to the Son
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning
Is now, and ever shall be
World without end.
