Hope Consumes Despair

Life taken away
By self of thine own hand
Empty heart of hopeless
No place on earth to land

Questions of no answer
Rise within our soul
Turn beyond of knowing
Out of our control

Heart cries in compassion
Of torment suffered deep
Alone to fight your struggles
Secrets in your keep

Questions of no answer
We offer to above
Light beyond the clouds
To trust within Your love

Where torment soothes its peace
Answer seen in prayer
Unseen finds its vision
Hope consumes despair

One thought on “Hope Consumes Despair”

  1. Thanks for posting this very moving poem. The title and the closing line brought to mind 1 Corinthians 15: 54:

    Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory.

    The Amplified Bible states, “Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory.” That’s when “Hope consumes despair.”
    Thanks for the reminder and thanks also for the “like” at Dr. J’s Apothecary Shoppe.
