The Less You Are, the More Hope You Have

As dusk erases the day
Familiar lines shade into night
Trouble seems boundless
Reason is senseless
Life within
Effortlessly placed by a colorless, faceless entity
When the world was found clueless
Was born helpless
And died harmless
Now found in me ageless
I rise fearless
Hope is revealed
When all else is powerless prompt is “Less is more” I used 7 or 8 words from a list of about 15 into a poem that instills hope, as hope is the first candle lit for advent.

    Capable use of the words from the “less” list, ending (as does Pandora’s box) with hope. Well said.


  6. Frank Hubeny says:

    Good point in the title. The less we are the more hope we have. A good reason to have less.


  7. We have to understand our insignificance to truly see the hope I think
