Grasping for Hope

By- Traci Taylor
November 2015

Vulnerability is standing on the edge of hope,
eyes shut and knowing failure is an option.

Courage is built from mistakes in the past,
that have wounded the heart with a shard of glass.

For the people that continue to live through each day,
regardless of the darkness it may be filled with.

Secretly longing for light to shine through,
unknowing when or if that time will come.

Being open to possibility feels unsafe,
but the rainbow never appears until after the rainfall.

Holding on in the storm and seeking out tomorrow,
is grasping onto hope at the most vital of times.
