Hope is rising.

It’s lifting expectations.

It’s elevating the spirit.

It’s boosting enthusiasm.

Hope is rising.

Chins go up with it.

As do shoulders.

And there’s a sudden spring in the step.

Hope is rising.

And one by one, we rise with it.

We step up out of the rut.

We clamber over the obstacles in our path.

We begin to float above the surface.

Hope is rising.

Can you feel it?
