Hallowed By Time (NaPoWriMo)

It’s National Poetry Writing Month in April. Although I don’t live in the United States, I can easily be a part of the festivities involving literature. I am also late, April is about to end but I’ll try to write some more poems in lieu of #NaPoWriMo. Here’s my poem titled ‘Hallowed By Time

Do not take that gift of hope lightly. It has the power to conquer despair in the midst of sorrow, to light the darkness in the valleys of life, to whisper “One more time” in the face of failure. Hope is what gives life to dreams, making the fairy tale the reality.

—L.R. Knost
