Symphony of Hope

by Nkoyo O. Nsa
(Odukpani, Cross River, Nigeria)

Behold! The dawn of a new day,
With hope's bright rays in full display,
A symphony of life anew,
Unfolding with a wondrous view.

The sun ascends with golden light,
Dispelling darkness, chasing night,
Birds awaken with joyful trills,
Nature's orchestra, a chorus thrills.

Leaves unfurl, flowers bloom,
Nature's palette, a vibrant plume,
Life's rhythm beats in perfect time,
A symphony of nature's prime.

In bustling cities, busy streets,
People hustling to their feats,
Dreams and aspirations soar,
A symphony of life's grandeur.

Hands clasped in love, hearts entwined,
A bond that's strong, forever bind,
Promises made, vows spoken true,
A symphony of love, anew.

In the face of challenges, we stand strong,
With courage, we'll overcome the wrong
United, we'll weather any storm,
A symphony of resilience, a powerful form.

As we journey through life's ebb and flow,
Hope shines bright, a guiding light
Build the world we desire.
