(After Psalm 23)

 Hope is my companion

        when all else has been lost to me.

Hope urges me to rest and reflect in a place of possibilities,

        so that re-creation and renewal are mine.

Hope is my guide when I am confused.

Even when the darkest of nights seems never ending

        I find that I am embraced, comforted and consoled.

Despair may threaten to overwhelm me.

But Hope lingers and anxiety is quelled,

        allowing the seeds of joy to be sown.

No matter what may come my way,

assaults of the ignorant,

abuse from the misguided,

silence from those who should stand by me,

I will not be overcome again.
