The Great Hope


“My great hope

is to laugh

as much as I cry;

to get my work done

and try to love somebody

and have the courage

to accept the love in return.”


~ Maya Angelou


Oh the fear, the needless worry, that

the love you give will not be returned

or even worse yet, to think

that you are not worthy of that love.

Today, put your self esteem in high gear,

laugh, love, get the job done

and know that for every ounce of love you give

the pounds that you will receive in return

are all yours to enjoy.

Love is the great hope.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
