Hope In The Smallest Things

Hope In The Smallest Things

A Poem by Undying Glory

My rap about how hope is always there...no matter what the situation

Hope In The Smallest Things

The world is so dull, the skies are so gray
As we go about our boring lives everyday
We all hate our lives, but what can we do?
Where on earth can we find a sky so blue?

Abused by bosses, parents, teachers, the world,
The walls are closing in, thoughts just a swirl
Waiting for dreams that just don't come true
Wishing there was someone else like you

To commiserate, talk, something for the pain
Just a placebo for all the disdain
You walk, the gray streets falling all around
The rain is pouring, splashing on the ground

"At least my umbrella works," you think to yourself,
But over in the distance you see someone else
She's soaked to the skin, caught out all alone
Running really fast just to get back home

But you give her shelter, she smiles at you,
And you feel your heart lighten, and you smile too. 
With the little things that we do everyday
Don't listen to them who think that hope's gone away. 

It's right in front of you, and whatever you do, 
Hope's in all the smallest things, you know that's true.
All the small things that we do everyday
Bring back the colour to our world so gray

Man..I really enjoyed reading this. You have created a roller coaster ride of emotion. Your images were remarkable, but IMO your technical skills overshadowed your depictions. I like how you took a person and stripped them of everything, then you made them belong. You then put them up on a pedestal and turned them into a savior. In the end, the person is an inspiration. You should be quite proud of your work.
