Panegyric

Some rave everything
Is broken, nothing works right,
Labor is in vain,
Everyone is misinformed,
The future holds no promise.

But –

When I look around
I see the restoration
Of communities,
People who lost their way find
Others willing to lend a hand.

Hearts –

Engaged in building
Better tomorrows for all,
Reaching out to help
Encourage more faith, hope, love
Which are foundations of growth.

Many –

Are creating lives
Which they dreamed into being,
Becoming more who
Inspiration taught they were,
Conquering criticism, doubt, fear.

Doom/Gloom –

Are over-rated
If we open our eyes to
See, the world has much
To recommend itself and us;
Life is beautiful and blessed.
