Is It Not Hope

Is It Not Hope

Is it not HOPE? 
To tuck the children
In their bed tight 
And wish them sweet dreams 
For a morning bright.

Is it not HOPE? 
To light a Diya 
And bow your head 
In front of a deity 
For your daily bread

Is it not HOPE? 
To soak lentils overnight 
For them to sprout 
And have healthy breakfast 
To be up and about 

Is it not HOPE?
That makes us survive 
Despite the gloom that surrounds
We continue to strive 
And love our life.

One thought on “Is It Not Hope

  1. And is it not HOPE? That all need right now. The poem tastes of warmth and safety. And bright sunshine. And hope. Finely carved.
