Poem – Bundle of Hope

Hello my friends! I’m really excited to be back posting again today – I’ve got a poem that I hope you’ll all enjoy! It feels like time is moving by really quickly right now… How are we already 1/3 of the way through November?! My week has been busy – work, school, first aid training, meeting up with people, and moving forward on various things relating to college and scholarships. It’s been a bit nuts, but I’ll survive. 😀 And let’s be real here, when is life ever not slightly crazy?? 😛

So yes, today I’m sharing a short poem I wrote… at some point recently… the days totally all melt together for me  You may not know this about me, but I am a huge lover of children. I’m part of a big family, have grown up babysitting tons, and I now work with children part-time. I love the hilarity and the personality and the innocence that exudes from children – especially small ones! I am also very aware of the enormous responsibility that children carry unknowingly on their shoulders. Like it or not, they are the next generation to have an impact on the adult world, and the potential that is within this upcoming generation is incredible! It’s exciting and scary at the same time. I was thinking about this one evening and pondering the idea of hope and what forms hope can take… and this poem came from those ponderings. Hopefully you can see how all those thoughts come together in this poem! 🙂

Some say
hope is a thing with
feathers

But I think
hope is a bundle of
flesh
wrapped in a woollen blanket
to ward away the cold
of a dark world

The potential of a generation
grasped within
minute fists
The words of the ancients
slumbering behind
tight-shut eyes
The power of the people
resting on one
                      small
                             child

Comment down below how you feel about the topic of children/the upcoming generation/the power of their potential. Or anything else that comes to mind as you read this poem! I’d love to hear anything from any of you! 🙂
