Hope Needs A Humble Hand

By Becca_Blais All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry / Fantasy

Chapter 1

Hope needs a humble hand to guide it to the right places. Hope needs a hand that will place it in the hearts of men and women, into the eyes of children. Hope is fragile, and needs to be handled delicately, but just one spark can ignite a flame. 

The handlers of hope are fairies. They look like little insects, and they spread hope to even the darkest corners of the earth. We don't recognize them for what they really are, and we swat at them, writing them off as pests. 

In reality, fairies are what we call black flies. They're too small for us to see properly, and look like black dots that fly through the air, hence the name, black fly.

Hope runs in the veins of fairies, and when we kill one, the hope drains away with the fairy. IF we continue this way, hope will die out entirely, and there will be no point in living. But if we choose to listen to the little children that whisper about fairies, if we cease our obsession with destroying the littlest of beings because they're smaller than us, then maybe hope will prevail. 

We refuse to see what might not be expected. Instead we choose to see what's normal. If we believe, then we can see the little creatures that give us hope. If we believe in what our children do, we can see the beauties of this world.

I see them, because I believe and have hope. Do you?

Maria Appkova: I enjoyed the plot and the idea. and the need to change her awesome idea to save others people in city. and romance in the story involved. just romantic btw her and henri. Good work.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Ro-Ange Olson: Loved it and couldn't put it down. I really hope there is a sequel. Well written and the plot really moves forward.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Sandra Leigh: excellent story. Lots of classic fairy tale elements with a fresh spin. Very much looking forward to the sequel. However, there are a number of typos and minor awkward sentences.
