Hope in the Hopeless

Hope in the Hopeless

A Poem by The Dudeman (Kenneth T)

A song I wrote in about half an hour. Inspired by "So Cold" by the band Breaking Benjamin.

The world is lost
Yet here we stand
Left here to die and fade away
Searching through ruins
Lives buried in sand
But we won't join them today!

Fighting all for nothing
I promise we'll get through
You have nothing left
But at least I still have you
Ashes falling down
Nothing left to gain
Why won't you believe
The Sun will shine again?

Your strength is lost
Yet I still stand
I will not let you fade away
All alone
In a wasted land
I lie and say I'm okay

Fighting all for nothing
I promise we'll get through
You have nothing left
But at least I still have you
Tears are falling down
Leaving only pain
I must make you believe
The Sun will shine again

But I'll find hope in the hopeless
I'll show you what it's like
To feel the touch of love
And fix our shattered life

Now we fight for something
Certain we'll get through
I know you're right beside me
Where I can never lose you
The Sun is shining high
And now we learned what's true
Lets leave this world behind
And start our life anew!

Author's Note

The Dudeman (Kenneth T)
Because I love Breaking Benjamin so much, I thought I'd try to write a song similar to theirs. The lyrics are much like "So Cold": trying to survive and keep hope in an apocalyptic world, but the music sounds more like "Unknown Soldier". For those who know the band, how good of a job did I do?

Very good

Wow that was exactly what I was thinking even before I saw your note.
I can hear the words now being sung by Benjamin's deep angelic voice.
I am also inspired by Breaking Benjamin when I write.
Wonderful Job!

So, I'm pretty sure your still my hero. This is amazing. If you need someone to write some music, I'm your girl. : )

I must listen to this band. Their songs sound entertaining. In this life nothing is easy. Need to fight to hold on to any good in this life. I like the ending. Better to be with another. Always strength in numbers. A excellent poem. Thank you.
