Hope – Quote and Poem

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” 

― Robert Fulghum

unfolding your thoughts
observing your free spirit
now begin the flight
let the light shine within you
actual magic will happen
hope is an awakening dream
