“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

Hope (A Poem Dedicated To The Australian Prisoners Of War WWII) (Poetry)

by Prudence Wheeler, Star of the Sea College – Australia

Why do we dread the dawn,
If Hope is but a light.
If hope is but a comfort,
Take comfort in the night.

Hope is in the Summer birds,
In every breath they sing.
Hope vanishes as they flee,
as they spread their two free wings.

Hope is in our loved ones,
Or so we are told.
It is a chill when we are hot,
and warmth when we are cold.

But then I suddenly realise,
As I hear that morning call.
