Lock of Hope

Pain is what unlocks hope.....

Lock of Hope

Veins pulse with chemo, blue and purple snakes wriggle in hope.

Red eyes rinse tears, beads of sweat intertwine like broken old rope.

A locked phone buzzes, incoming calls remain unheard.

Family prayers, remain silent, powerful, seeking out god's miracle word.

But amidst the pain, and the heavy hearts, and love as old as creation.

The cancer stands absolutely zero chance, when a soul unlocks inspiration.
