A Ray Of Hope What a glimmering gloomy day! Full of fiery fears and hopelessness_ Will it ever get better? ‘Cause it doesn’t seem like it. It seems to look the same_ Same obscurity everyday, With not a ray of light– To brighten my day. Days are meant to be bright_ Why the gloom? I can’t fathom the cause Of the misery Making everything look hopeless. Can’t say why it looks so dark. Will it ever get brighter? Will there ever be a ray of light_ To illuminate and give hope again? Nevertheless- I believe light will come_ I will just have to hold on. Though it wouldn’t be easy, But there will be light for the day– To give me back my hope again. No matter how cloudy or gloomy the sky may be, There’s hope for a clear and brighter day_ Lightened by even just a ray of sunlight. Yes, your gloom can get brighter too. And yes, there is hope for you! Though it may be dark_ Yet again I say, Trust and believe in God. Change is on the way!
