Which Way Is It To Hope

Which Way Is It To Hope 

By: Boomie Bol

which way is it to hope 

And how do we get there from here 

a distance so far removed 

from a future mostly unknown 

an ageless question 

that transcends time and class

yet finds its answer(s) in the same line 

requiring that we begin inward

searching for truth within ourselves 

the most authentic version of Hope. our Hope 

not the parceled package charm 

of social media 

nor the noise of prosperity preachers 

but the firm awareness of today’s realities

along with the reassurance 

of better tomorrow’s 

because the future is not so far removed

neither is it distant 

it is here it is now 

albeit mostly unknown 

it requires Hope 

from deep within
