A free-verse poem about keeping hope for the future.
|When depression, despair,
and desperation sweep over
an individual or the nation,
then is not the time to give in,
for giving up leads to irreversible
consequences. No, instead
the circumstances demand
a response to the call for change.
By resisting, by making alterations
in behavior and resolve, a new day
may be just beyond the horizon.
A better, more pleasing future
is possible, though a price may
be required to obtain it.
Keep the faith that within every
person lies the potential for securing
the desired future. Remember always,
hope coupled with productive actions
is what keeps that dream alive.
So strive on, America. Strive on!
