In Spe (In Hope)


Hope is a curious thing.

It can just be a trickle of water on a dry riverbed, a flicker of light in the dark,
a flimsy string that keeps us from falling into the abyss.


And yet, if we keep our faith in it, hold on to it and never let go,
it can sustain us through our ordeal, can illuminate our way out of desolation,
and pull us out from despondency and hardships.
