Poem: Just a Shred of Hope

Just a Shred of Hope

Time goes by at lightning speed.

You’re caught up in the day-to-day

and don’t realize time is passing you by.

You live each day

in your special way

with hopes and dreams

for another day.

When things in life go awry,

you try hard not to cry.

The overwhelming pain

consumes your mind

and dampens your spirit.

You close your eyes and question why

life has given you a dark eye.

When the answers don’t come,

you then question and doubt yourself.

And, you ask yourself, “Why Me?”

Then, you find yourself

searching for just a shred of hope

to get you through the day.
