Hope

HOPE

Through the darkest of nights,

Worst of downpour

Through sorrow, through joy,

Through life, through death

Comes hurtling down

A single ray of hope

To save all of humanity.

Amidst poverty of millions

Deteriorating environmental conditions

Corruption, abuse and competition

Global warming and addiction

Still exists innocence

Love and goodwill

When everything goes wrong

You are at the edge of precipice

And all you can see

Is how down you want to go

And not the light behind you

Someone would pull you back

And hold your hand to

Remind you there’s light behind dark

Despite all wastelands

Smoky chimneys, sooty rain

Unbearably hot and cold days

Buds still bloom and birds still sing

To remind us of hope within

It’s all there is to life

Which is like a castle of cards

Of tears , joys and pursuit

Hope is the invisible force

Your determination, courage and concentration

Holding it in place

Through winds of sorrow and loss.
