April 27: I Carry Hope

by allisonkujiraoka

I carry hope
in the hope that it carries me
to a slightly sweeter plane
than where I move and breathe.

I carry faith
in faith that it proves real
a concrete landing after the leap
the veil lifted, when all is revealed.

I carry peace
in peace I make an offering
to lead with heart, not head
ego subsumed, judgment withholding.
