Short Poems Hope

hope-poem

 

Hope
Knows no fear.

 

Hope dares to blossom
Even inside the abysmal abyss.

 

Hope secretly feeds
And strengthens
Promise.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

~

Hope passes beyond,
Far beyond
The abyss of despair.

- Sri Chinmoy (2)

Let us not underestimate the power of hope.
No matter how fleeting its life,
It offers to us the most convincing
And fulfilling power.

- Sri Chinmoy (4)

Yesterday's failures
Must be forgotten.
Tomorrow's new hope
And new fulfilment
Must be cherished.

Sri Chinmoy (5)

Hope is not a momentary flicker.
Hope is Eternity's slow, steady,
Illumining and fulfilling height.

Sri Chinmoy (6)

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope
Even in the sunset of your life.

Sri Chinmoy (7)
