A Glimpse of Hope

Forlorn in the shadows of the night

In the blanket of stars I gaze upright

The radiant moonbeam in the dark sky

Reflects the tears in my eyes as I cry.

In the midst of coldness I keep on asking

Would love keep on burning?

Deep within I stopped on dreaming

Now I understand, I should start believing.

Inevitable as a man has to ponder

Pain makes us better and stronger.

Resilient as a tree in the blow of the wind

Inside I am as strong as it seemed.

I have been broken for so many times

Yet I still remain to be sublime

Like a broken bell that continues to chime

Though broken, I still look fine.

The smiles that I keep on my face

Dissembling happiness to show solace.

Defined by the past I have been,

People judge as if my past they have seen.

People say: poor little fellow

Looking weak and intellectually shallow.

But I say: wait until you see what I sow

My dreams I will never forego.
