From Hopeless To Blessed

Untitled Chapter

When days turn fast to dark night
When nights last without moonlight
When sun looks like too long to shine yet
Desperately dreaming of the heat in the morning
My skin never seems to feel
Hit by the nightly wind of my illusions, cold as ice
Waking me up to the world of my disillusions, raining sky,
Leading me to a shelter of questions without answers
Answers endlessly expected like the dawn in an endless dark night
Fears appear to be hard to fight and,
Hope looks like too long to shine yet and,
What’s life without hope? And,
What’s worse than living hopeless?
Maybe leaving your Faith…
Under my skin, burnt a lifting spirit
The flame of Faith kept my flesh 37°C,
So I kept the Faith, to help me wait until the next day to come
Like a morning bird impatient in its nest to best start the day by singing
Not knowing of what tomorrow is made
Just knowing about the past, trying to forget about yesterday
Knowing that today is a new present to open up…
Never sure if I’d enjoy this present as much as my last birthday present
But forever keeping at least the joy of my Faith…
Faith in who, trust in what? Faith in Mr Sunshine, trust in peacefulness.

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...
