Faith, Hope and Taking Chances
men search for it all their lives.
Some look a long time,
some look a short
Some choose not to look for it at all
and thus lose hope and faith
of us want it, yet some
will not take the chance to find it.
For them, the
risk means pain
and that is a price they will not pay.
finds all that take the chance
to look for it.
Once found, a wise man pays
the price to keep it.
For the true kind is the best and the one
found, it will bring pure joy, add hope, chase away all
doubts and fears, and
bring light to the dark.
And it does not ask for a thing.
warmth it gives can be spread -
a gift to all that will take it, and share
It can bond all men as one, if they let it.
It has the strength to end
all wars, stop plagues and droughts.
a shame that all the world does not know it, for it will
share with young and
old, rich and poor, black and white.
The risk is so small, and the gain is
Yet some are still blind to its ways.
a day it will be -
When the whole world finds love.
