Hope On My Heart









In today’s world, everything can seem so bleak and chaotic, it would be so easy to lose hope in that there are still good and beauty and innocence.  It can be quite easy to stay focused on all the negatives (no thanks to the news media as well as social media and the entertainment industry) that we lose track of who we really are as a human race. In our own lives, we deal with pain and trauma; for some, on a continuous and even daily basis.  It is during these times we need to hold on to hope in that this particular trying time will eventually pass.  It is hope that keeps us going.  Fighting.  Looking for the good and beauty and innocence that are still there.


Where would mankind be in the absence of hope?


So, during my darkest days, I choose to hang on to hope.  I choose to fight so I can feel the warm sun rays on my face again.  And I choose to look for the good and the beauty and innocence that I know still exist.  I may need to work harder to see them, but they are there.




Hope is the Thing With Feathers

by Emily Dickinson

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea,
Yet never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.


Hope Is Always There

By Joanna

In a sea of darkness
Searching for the light
But those who you once loved
Have left you to deal; alone
Ask for help, no one will come
But most of all, don’t you lost hope
Hope is always there
Even in the roughest moments
Hope, I need you
Hope, I want you
You need something to hold onto
Hope is gone…
Is it really gone?
The demon inside you, grows stronger every day
We all have our demons
Everybody suffers
Everybody deals
Everybody copes
Everybody breaks
Everybody hopes
Everybody cries
Don’t you cry
There’s always hope
Angels, where have you gone?
Do not leave me here, alone
“I need help”
Hearts breaks
Souls dies
Hearts shatters
I will not be silenced
Hope always remains
Brother, I need you now
The war’s not over yet
Hold onto me, we still have time
Because hope’s always there
Even in the darkest times
I fall into your sunlight



One thought on “Hope On My Heart

  1. Hope has been a theme in my life and this post really touched me. One of my favorite songs of mine is called “Hang On.”
    I think a companion to hope is “love.” Those two things are light in the darkness. Beautiful words, Carrie – especially with the title of “Hope On My Heart.”
