—created for a friend who thought there was no hope—-
Desperation and despair envelop us,
We cry and resign; we yield and not fight back,
Our feet shake and we tumble down.
The sun hides its glorious face,
Even a speck of it’s light is denied us,
We bow our head desolated.
No hope in our eyes,
They display bleakness,
We only see shadows and dark clouds;
And when we thought of closing our eyes,
A voice we hear so tender and sweet,
“Rise up my child, stand on your feet and walk forward”.
And so even with a flickering hope we must stand,
Hope against all hopes,
For in every after a gloomy day is a blue sky and shinny day.
But when the small hope turns gray,
We have another reason to live,
We have another reason to survive.
We have another reason to brave every storm,
We have another reason to trudge mountainous mountains
Another reason why we must finish the course…
They are our love ones…
They always do.
