Reflection of Hope

“May your choices reflect your hopes not your fears”
Nelson Mandela reflected after years
Of incarceration, yet he still had hope
That he held all that time in order to cope!
He serves as an inspiration to many
To those who feel hopeless and don’t have any
Reminding us each when we do make a choice
That we each hold the power to raise our voice
And not lose our hope for our country or world
And that justice for all will one day be unfurled
