Hope is There.

We have all heard it,

We have probably said it,

Hope for the best,

Prepare for the worst.

Is it right to say this?

Surely the best is there,

Is out there for us,

So why not just look,

Look for the good we want.

Frame those goals,

Those goals that will give pleasure,

Give the pleasure we look towards.

We need to achieve those goals,

So instead of hoping for the best

And preparing for the worst,

Why not hope for a better future

And start acting,

Acting to make those goals happen.

    Good write Gold.
    I got it wrong. Erm, I hoped for the worst, and prepared for the best - in 1066 anyway! Why did I turn up then? lol.

          Thank you for your kind words Fay, we do need to action on our hopes.

          Action is 99 % of the Law,
          those that procrastinate or hesitate,
          don’t get nothing done at all

          Great Message Andy

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you RB, it is part of my life to always look for the good that is front of me and do it.
