Keep the Hope Alive

Keep the Hope Alive

This clashing waves of the sea
That blocks my view ahead to see.
The cloudy storming gale that rails
And the wind that assails my sails
On this return voyage to my abode;
Tells me that no matter the strain on the road,
The hope must be kept alive.

Should I wait at sea?
Allowing the gale to recede;
Or, forge ahead in the wind
Trusting the charts all along?
The first pick may capsize my boat
Others too, but no matter what,
The hope will be kept alive.

Though the journey may be rough;
And the dream, unattainable seems;
I will hold unto the hope that drives me on.
Though is hard to see ahead
And the voyage on the edge of peril be
Yet, with the chart and the compass
The hope will be kept alive.
