H is for Hungering Hope



Hungering for a hint of hope
He falls upon his knees
Praying to his God above
“Hey You! A little help here, please.”

“I know I haven’t made the time
To have you in my life…
You think that is maybe why
It’s been filled with strife?”

“I come before you, humbly now,
Heart hardened by hurtful past
Honestly seeking heaven’s hand
From this hell to be cast.”

“I thank you, God, for hearing me
As I hunch before thy throne.
Ready to heed thy holy word
And dwell within thy home."

Yep, there's certainly more then one way to miss out on Hope, and not listening is right up there on the top. Hope you'll visit my post on Hope too!

a poignant declaration...
a glorious collection of words that make us "feel"...
that is the key to unlock the door.
well done !

I guess if you haven't made contact in a while, you might as well make it a good contact and this was it. Awesome.
