Hope

A Poem by Lucy Morningstar ♥
"

A really bad poem written late at night; enjoy lol

"

I like to believe

That the world is a wish granting factory

That if I invite enough positive energy

Into my life that maybe, just maybe

I’ll get what I want and need.

 

But that is not how the world works

And it never will; life likes to crush our spirits

And make our them hard against happier things,

Make us doubt and fear in times of great joy

And as a result, lose everything.

 

We have these terrible, nasty thoughts

That we do not wish to think, but sometimes they

Get the better of us and we are swallowed up

By the universe, forgotten by time just as quickly

As we came into this life to begin with.

 

But when Pandora opened that box

And let her humanity show through,

One little thing escaped with the rest.

A tiny light that guides the way

and sits in our hearts every minute of every day.

 

It’s infected me body and soul

So much so that I can’t concentrate

On the day to day because I have this

Insatiable hope that everything will go

the way I dream it to. 

 

I don’t have many reasons

To believe in many things.

My hope’s been dashed so many times

I’m surprised I even dare to dream

The things I dream.

Well written and expressed!
I always get a kick when the writer pens something like "just scribbling"
in authors note, then you read the piece like this one and think that was
really good:) if that's the case then, I wish I could scribble like this, lol!
Thanks for sharing and b-blessed!

you are so very welcome!
Poems like this leave people feeling like they're "not the only one" and not so lonely. I think we need more of that in the world.

thanks friend :)
I have found that some of my best work happens when I am up at 1PM or later. I didn't feel that this was a bad poem. I loved your reference to Pandora's box and the fact that even though life is constantly giving you reasons to doubt you still have hope within your heart. Beautiful work.

I can relate to feeling like this, wouldn't say it's bad. I really liked the last stanza, but I like to read poems that I can connect too and this is definitely one, enjoyed the read :)
