On the TV, On the Radio, so many Newspapers bring News and documentaries about the pains and poverty of different places of the world… I was opportuned to watch one of such… Its so painful to see some many people live in that standard while there are so many people squandering what could actually ameliorate these conditions on flimsy values and invaluable targets! Yea everybody owns his or her pocket, but i think some humanitarian service ain’t too much…
I just did some work on this piece down here to reveal my expression that hope is not lost for anybody whosoever… READ BELOW:

One Look
One Sight
Of blurred afar struggles
One mind
One thought
Of earth’s life ambivalence
Looking askance of self’s Future
But yet, on the blink for hope

One blue
One sorrow
Of a broken heart
Of profuse tears
Periodic dying
Of the abandoned souls
But yet, hope has its place

One fall
One shame
Of a misplaced trust
Abetting truth denial
One confession
One repentance
From crooked pleasures
Twice remorseful
Today is disheartening
But tomorrow is a place for hope

One wound
One hurt
Ample stings of pain
Dry ointment
Detoned pills
No Good, No fair
So hope seems buried as maggots diet
But they of insight behold it

One bread
One fish
Many hungers
Not a love for ease
Of the farmished bellies
Not a care or smile
For the troubled countenances
But silent whispers
Of despisers mockery
Yet, hope’s place is never void

Does darkness not bore lights
Of the moon and stars?
Or does sunshine not kiss stones,
Brighten flowers and dry mud
Of their rainfall’s stupor?
So yea, there’s always a place for Hope.

    it would be my hope that there is a place for hope among the rest, among the pain and sorrow
    without hope we have no tomorrow…life is def not fair though
    i dont know that we should expect it to be.

  2. Sobering reflection. If we each could offer “one bread, one fish…” A good reminder.

  3. We can change if we want to… but my hopes are far from high…

  4. Beautiful! I especially love that last stanza … it shines.

    Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂

    Your subject is so relevant – and I really like the way you set it out with the repetitious phrasing at the start of each stanza.

  6. Thank God for hope, without it we could not bear all that we see. Thank you for the awareness in this poem, the wish to ameliorate the suffering and, most especially, for the hope, especially in your closing stanza.I am working on a poem in a similar vein this morning.

    A very moving poem. I do think somehow we always have to keep hope! I like the idea of darkness bearing the light of the moon and stars!

    True, there is always a glimmer of hope in the darkest of scenarios. Loved the poem. I hope humanitarian service is taken up by each priveliged soul for its lesser brothers n sisters in the world.
