I am on my way Home.
I am going to get there
No matter what.
It is my life’s quest.

I am clinging to the Promise.
I am compelled.
I will not be hindered.
I will not be thwarted.

There is much work to do,
Much that has to be released.
Resentment, Bitterness, Rage,
Unforgiveness and the like.

As I journey on this path,
They will lose their vise-like grip
On my life and heart.
And I will be free.

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
