Faith and Hope

Two words important in life
My life

I have faith in myself
My abilities
My talents
My honesty
My independence
My colleagues
My true friends
My life choices

Everything I hoped for
I have

I hoped for recognition
I hoped for friendships
I hoped for stability
I hoped for material and spiritual wealth’
I hoped to be understood

Hope is always in the future
My exciting future
Tomorrow will always come

Hope must always come
An essential part of the jigsaw of life
