Hope: Antidote for Difficult Times

sun on river mountain 1

Panic spreads

throughout the land

a ravaging disease

fear of touching a hand


Fear is vicious

taking away people’s power

contagious darkness spreading

despair grows by the hour


The sun rises

it is a new day

an antidote grows

light is on the way


Rising out of the fear

through the light shines hope

love fights the fear

we learn to cope


Time passes

the disease appears to have no end

loving each other

we rely on friends


Hope is the antidote

causing the fear to bend

darkness is wiped out

Light wins in the end
