better days

Hope -- Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of
uncertainty. †The audacity of hope! †In the end, that is Godís greatest gift to us...A
belief in things not seen. †A belief that there are better days ahead.
óBarack Obama

better days
are up ahead,
where the fire
has not yet scorched
all of the path i travel.
in a haze,
as good as dead,
one desire
for which iíve marched:
lifeís mysteries to unravel.

is not the end
of my dreams
of levity.
of all the things iím daring,
remains my friend;
for it seems
timeís brevity
pales when with faith comparing.

verdant hills
come into view,
though the climb
be arduous;
unready yet to plead dead
where death spills,
the residue
of my prime
to where my blood has bleeded.
