A Poem by Prateeksha Khot

HOPE is a short poem which tells us to never lose faith whatsoever because god always has something planned for us.


When dreams are shattered,

When you feel all is lost,

Don't feel dejected,

Don't lose hope at any cost.

Life is not a bed of roses,

It has its ups and downs.

We should learn to accept failures,

And not meet them with frowns.

So what if you have not achieved,

What was to be your aim.

There is no need to feel sorry,

There is no need to feel shame.

Man writes his own destiny,

So don't lose hope as yet.

Come on! Buckle up and work harder,

Dont sit there and fret.

If things don't turn out the way you want,

Don't let that spoil your mood,

Because you must remember one thing :

I agree with you completely! The cliche that I've always heard and sadly used myself was "life will never be easy," it speaks for itself. Now on the structure of it, you had a great rhyme scheme of ABCB and then in the last stanza I understand that the content of it was still very poetic and expressive of your emotions. It seems that you knew just what you wanted to say in that last stanza and were excited to write it down; if so, I would advise to write down what first comes to mind and then later go back and try to keep it with the same rhyme scheme. Otherwise, it was a very convincing poem and I really enjoyed reading this.

Yes, I totally agree with you Prateeksha! Whenever we feel dejected, it is that time when God has planned something better for us and all we have to do is BELIEVE.

Hi, I'm brand new here and this is the first thing I've read and my first review on Writers Cafe (though I've done lots on Wattpad!) I like this poem, I like your way of thinking, and I like your About Me. I'm not used to this rating and points system, so please forgive me for not knowing what to do. I will be back to read more of your work. :)
