Hope Springs Eternally (XVI)

Humanity stands on the precipice
Of love and hate…life and death.
Perched between destiny and free will,
Eager for what the future may hold.

Searching within their souls
Perchance to find a reason,
Reality is what we make it.
Indeed, it is up to us and
Not just mere happenstance that
Governs our decisions.
Stand up and shout!

Energize yourselves to the possibilities
That surround us each day.
Envelop the beauty that you see
Right there in front of you.
Never focus solely on the that which is wrong.
Although it might seem so overwhelming,
Life is truly there for the taking.
Love is there for the sharing.
Yes! It is never-ending!

      Thanks Darling. A couple of the lines came to me this morning, and once I decided on the Acrostic form, the rest just flowed right out. 😀

          Really? I never capitalize every line. I thought that made it more obvious. 😀

            I didn’t notice the acrostic either, until i read the comments. I did notice a similar theme from the one I just read (i am reading these backwards, I know) about standing up, and making yourself heard. A good subject and one I think a lot of people need to think about more!

              I guess they do have similar themes, though this one I saw had more of a societal, rather than political slant in it. 😀

    ok I did not see the acoustic either
    though a good thoughtful and true write
    which is why I never watch the news !!

      Hmmm…I wonder if I should work on my acrostics. I seem to be doing them subliminally. 😀

      Thanks Sue.
