The Hopeful Mind

The Hopeful Mind

written by: Mark Tulin



It’s the hopeful mind
I’m trying to find,
the one that doesn’t slip
through my fingers
or fade with change,
but stays in place
during trying times.

I’m not looking for anything
special or fancy
to celebrate a good fortune,
nor the serious kind
that weighs a person down.

A flickering light would be fine,
an optimistic sign,
a slight bend in the road
that says that something positive
is not far away.

I want a little hope,
a gift of promise,
a chance to find,
a gentle tap on the shoulder
in the comfort of an easy chair.
