HOPE…used and misunderstood? or just out of reality
others consider them as a state of mind unexpressed
a set back from the pain that is in search of a way out
or just a feeling that is in severe longing…

HOPE…a wish-deprived of truth? or just being unknown
others consider it fulfillment yet undone and unseen
behind the unconsciousness of the mind, it lies
or just at its rest, motionless there waiting

HOPE…can be a dream in a fatality? or just out of the possibility
others consider them as what minds reap in thoughts
a memory left untouched by a conviction of consciousness
or just a mere perception of one’s own expectations

HOPE…is never fully understood yet loved by all
others clenched tight on it and never let go
to whatever tomorrow will be, their heart keeps holding on
or seeing them as the only reason to live by life

this is HOPE to whatever it brings to a soul
to whatever it brings to everyone’s heart
it makes them believe…it makes them live

    “HOPE…is never fully understood yet loved by all”, as Emily Dickinson’s poem tells that hope is a giving thing it doesn’t take for itself as: ” it never ask a crumb of me”
    A new perspective: “hope….used and misunderstood?”
