What is hope?
Is it the tangible promise of all you've ever wanted?
Does it encompass all your dreams? Or is it the lone candle valiantly shining despite the darkest night?
The vessel tossed amidst the highest waves?
Or is it something more...something unexplainable?
Trusting, while all around your world falls apart,
Trusting enough to take the first step out into the unknown, even though you can't see your way,
Yes, it's now I see that trust and hope go hand in hand,
For no one knows how the story will end except the Author of life,
And so I begin to walk...one step at a time
