Poem: Hope?

Updated on January 12, 2015

poem

Lost - what is destiny

Gain - only to loose

Look up you’re going to be fine

But no, you self must drain to survive


Tell them they are more

Don’t stop for they think you’re the cure

And you, you only wonder why

Your life seems so empty and dry.


Lift, lift yourself up they cry

You must not do this, you cannot do this

You are crazy and the one at fault, they cry.


Why lift up if such is true? What’s the point of being you?

Why train to be nice if such hurts those

Who only you want love to show?


For yourself, they say, for you.

Why do anything for you, tis true

If you is only pain for others too?


But what about the part that’s lies

The part that only misunderstanding hides

The good you wanted, the mistakes you made

In trying to survive the day.


You’re caught, and no way out it seems.

Why try to find a destiny, a dream?

If there’s no hope, if those who believed don’t,

Then why believe in you against all hope?
