The light of hopeless times,
Illuminating the path of belief.
The inner voice, of a fearing soul,
Strengthening a heart in pain.

Oh, hear to your heart,
Listen to your inner self.
There is a truth residing there,
A happiness yearning to break free.

The first step of an infant,
The first flight of a bird’s child.
The first jump of a sky-diver,
The first victory of a lost man.

There is faith, that perpetuates life.
A self belief, overcoming every strife.
What is a self when no hope is left,
A life that is lifeless, & happiness bereft.
