Hope, you are so kind

That you screw up my mind

You stir up my expectations

Without any valid reasons

You keep that tiny flicker burning on,

Giving me something to count upon

But when you’ve tried your best

Till the end of my quest

Yet when I fail to yield

It breaks my shield

Leaving me open to wounds

Feeling so doomed

And still you are by my side

Like the best ever guide

Lighting another tiny flame

With a brand new aim

And this cycle respawns

Forever on and on

Hope you are so kind

That you screw up my mind.
