Hope begins with a broken promise,
The ground that I thought I knew,
No longer holds the same opportunity,
Every promise is shifting sands….
Sadness begins with my deepest loving,
The heart that belongs with mine,
Broken open by jagged words,
Every sadness is bathed in tears….
Trust begins with deep disappointment,
Crushed by the empty words,
The more that’s said less is believed,
Every crushed spirit is lost in the noise….
Hope, sadness and trust,
The broken promises,
Where do I belong?
Finding, seeking, longing,
What is lost is heard…
When failure is the kindest word,
Shifting sands become,
The ground that I stand on,
So everything begins.
