Poem of Hope

Updated on February 7, 2012

I know you think you can’t go on

You feel that no one cares

When you’ve poured out everything you’ve got

In a heartless world of tears

“This is it”, you tell yourself

On the verge of giving in

No ones here again this time

The irony wears thin

Look around at what you have

Possessions once adored

No longer satisfy your soul

Once happy times abhorred

“Where are they now”? you ask yourself

Those who said they cared

And said they’d never leave you lost

And never leave you scared

Don’t give up my friend, hold on

I’ve traveled down that road before

Huddled in the darkest rooms

A hundred times or more

Been right down on my hands and knees

My eyes have burned like acid rain

Humility now all do see

With all my life long fears and pain

Take my hand and we will stand

Together as if one

I’ll hold you up till you can walk

And one day you will run

      Thank you for this! I can really relate to your words here. A piece that I will definitely be reading again.

      Thank you. Sometimes I am still in those places or end up there, but I think the difference now is, I don't live in those places any more. Hopefully some do take comfort that there is always a way through, and not always quickly or easily, but a way none the less..

      Awesome piece! It is apparent speaking as one who has been there that you have been there too. It gets really dark during those times, we know. Hopefully, your poem will encourage some to keep trudging on through theirs. Thanks for sharing.

      I truly believe that many will be blessed with encouragement after reading your 'Poem of Hope!!!!'

      This poem totally testifies about it's title.

      I too have travelled 'that road.' Like you, I'm a living witness that you can get on your knees and pray, then crawl, then walk; and oh yes, RUN!!!!!

      Voted - 'way up!!!'

      Ciao...Princess Prisca
