We Know We Can Hope
Updated 15 February 2022
A poem by Philip PJ.
On 23 March 2020 the UK entered its first lockdown. I wrote this poem during the first wave of the coronavirus about hope and the calming perspective it can give us.
We know we can hope, in a world so unsure
For karma, for bigger, for better: for more
For you, for a friend, so hearts can beat stronger
For long term or short, so stars can gleam longer
Hope knows no reason, no scale or no never
Hope has no price, it’s within us whenever
So sleep rest assured, forget how much you’re given,
We own nothing more than the hope that We live in.
