Hope - Bitter and Joyful

Hope – Bitter and Joyful
January 13
Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.

There is a bitterness to hope that must be understood
that one has a desire for something good
but the pain that one cannot forget
is that the good thing one doesn’t have yet

The heart does hold on the will does stick
but as hope is deferred the heart grow sick
bones grow heavy optimism grows thin
because all the means never see an end

Ah but desire fulfilled is a beautiful thing
feet will dance and hearts will sing
when one’s desire reaches fruition
and one has rest from their own mission

To have hope and to see that hope come to be
is pure joy and also Life’s tree
then hope can be abandoned and so can demand
for what one desired is now in hand
