Hope Speaks to Rejection

Hope Speaks to Rejection

Rejection arrived in painful doses —
We didn’t order the prescriptions;
they manifested anyway

We gulp from the grip
that rejection dispenses —
It feels like a stranglehold — until . . .

In season, hope magnifies and speaks —
“Uncover your heads, dear ones —
Rewards are packaged
in the rejection episodes

“Lessons are contained
in the properties of your wounds —
Lessons to prepare for
new and pleasant victories

“Hope is here to “arrest” rejection
and to teach from what it delivered

“Collect yourselves —
Straighten your drooping shoulders —
Stand erect with heads up
and know that there are
indeed escape routes

“Get ready to ride
the splendid tides
of relief and freedom —
Surfs up!”

Which hope we have
as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast, . . .
Hebrews 6:19 – KJV
