Luck hid in the dark

beyond bliss

Refused to show up

when I chased it

Love followed

a different melody

Each time

I played it

Trust took shelter

in the street

Of which

I’d long gotten rid

Pride blinked me away

wished me ill

When I knocked on its doors

hungry and beat

Hope embraced me

when I was numb and frosty

It took my hand

offered warm company

    Hope is what keeps us alive. If it weren’t for hope many of us wouldn’t be alive today. If it weren’t for hope human race, perhaps, would have depleted long back (I know this is the extreme I am talking about.) But hope is the foundation of every other emotion and feeling and if not hope then most of the emotions would have ceased to exist as well.


“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.” ― James A. Michener
