The Hope

Hope is a funny thing
it makes you believe
In what not and what not
& the stories that deceive.

It motivates you to imagine
a beautiful and lovely life
Sunny, warm & cozy
days with love & without strife.

You think of winning
every battle you face
Tough, tiring or scary
every problem you can ace.

But life teaches you with whips
as it is a strict teacher
The hope which motivated you
will disappear when you need her.

This inspiring hope of yours
which appeared a sweet damsel
Enticing, luscious & lovely
deserted you & left you trampled.

Now you see yourself alone
there is no option but to duel
Wounded, bruised and bloodied
You give your both heart and soul.

You might have cursed the whips
and the never ending pain
But it’s the only lesson
which will put you in gain.

The efforts will carve you
in making a gallant man
Who is tough, stronger than steel
& handle whatever a mortal can.

You don’t know why you started
or if your hope was rational
But what a man you have become
as a result is really sensational.

You are neither afraid to go far
nor afraid of the destiny
You can duel, fight and beat
be it any kind of travesty.

The fear of pain or loss
can’t keep you from the fore
Like a man blind in love
you cry bring it once more.
