Poem: Road of Hope

If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you may already know that writing is an integral component of our Life Skills, Education and Arts Program (LEAP). Many women find that this introspective act can bring healing from past traumas or clarity into life’s challenges, and feel emboldened by using one of their most powerful tools– their voices.

In the spirit of the upcoming Hope Awards Dinner, in which we celebrate the spirit of hope, enjoy this poem that Tanya penned just last week.

Road of Hope 

Always ready to walk

No matter the thoughts that is talk

Years of strolling on this road

Carrying a bag along the way

Ant times can be such a heavy load.

At the bottom articles of

Belief, desire, faith, ambition,

Confidence, endurance, security,

Dreams… pushing and fighting

To reach the top.

Covered up and push down

By dying objects; fear, doubt,

Despair, discouragement,

Disbelief, dislike, distrust,

Will their power ever stop?

So I keep treading on

This road day by day knowing

It will never be an end.

Relaxing with peace, knowing

This road is called Hope

Just because it always begins.
