Finding hope

Find your hope
not in some distant place,
or in volleys of prays,
or back in mythical times,
or in ancient texts
that make fraudulent claims;
find it in living truly now
living with the comfort of you,
and accepting this state of being
and this body whole and real,
surrounded by the soothing, cooling
cloud of those who care,
of those who dare to love
and share your once and only life.
