This morning the sky is clear

Today I choose to hope.

I will see the young people striving to make things better

and those kind elders who haven’t quit.

I will feel the autumn sun on my skin

and smell the ocean breeze.

I will hear the morning birds fill the air

and drink my coffee.

I will say to myself it always was

and always will be

and believe the words.

I will know we are doing our best,

some days we try harder than others,

and sometimes we rest,

but we will never give up.
