the following was written by Mattie Stepanek

A NEW HOPE

I need a hope...a new hope.

A hope that reaches for the stars, and

That does not end in violence or war.

A hope that makes peace on our earth,

That does not create evil in the world.

A hope that finds cures for all diseases, and '

That does not make people hurt,

In their bodies, in their hearts,

Or most of all, in their spirits.

I need a hope ...a new hope,

A hope that inspires me to live, and

To make all these things happen,

So that the whole world can have

A new hope, too.

i discovered Mattie not so long ago and soon there after he passed onto heaven.  I have one of his books and will purchase the others.  For those who don't know of him, he was a great poet, leader of peace and inspiration to the world    He had Muscular Dystrophy and left us at the age of 13 i believe.   this poem i found in an old Science of Mind magazine i had buried in a bag   the magazine covered is plight and all his greatness.   if you haven't picked up one of his books, i recommend it greatly.   he's forever in my thoughts....
