Hope is Lost (A Poem)

Updated on March 19, 2013
5 out of 5 stars from 2 ratings of Hope is Lost

Your reaching believing that untold dreams do come true

your pouting doubting scared and turning blue

your hurt your pain no sun just rain coming down on your parade

you can't go forward you must go back that's where safe is at

your use to comfort not challenge being at ease not unbalanced

its something new im telling you

why go back to doing things you never use to do

Hope is Lost

Your addiction has hindered your mind your body your time

think of it now as countless days pass by you try you cry

your tears are looked upon as disgust no one cares no one you can trust

everyone has turned their back you used them that is whats sad

Hope is Lost

Look at the lights shining the children playing people praying

your dreams are now mere images of what could be and what never will be

why have your dreams surpassed weren't they suppose to last until you made

it graduating from that class

you chose a bad way tis what they say to see a destiny that wasn't meant for thee

Hope is Lost

your use to this way overwhelming medication intakes your addicted now

along with the show your drinking the fire liquid now

everything is a swirl your heading downhill

reaching out the window for a dream that was never near

Hope is Lost

      Through hope and hard labor anything really is possible, but one must want it.

      Emotionally expressive poem. It's so hard when it seems there is no more hope.

      Although I would only change this poem in the formatting. such as different spacing and line breaks.. I like your poem . it is very hard to tell someone to change their work . But in order to be a better writer you have to learn to take criticism. Your poem is great... but it would be better if you just change the way you format it.
