Notorious Hope

Oh! that hope
you nurture it
kindle it
keep it close to your heart
never to lose again

And the mind
that relentlessly tries convincing you
to move on
yet you seldom listen
and keep reeling on
until eternity strikes

Sometimes you suffer
often you cry
but you never let that hope
escape your sight

Hope though is a wonderful thing,
often it is deterrent,
as when we cling
to the word impossible
disappointment is what
we meet at the end

But then
wonders are never defined
in a world
crowded by eyes covered in blinds
for miracle happens to those
You never lose hope
