Had Hope

My 20 something self did hope

But I’ve reached the end of my rope

I never found him and he never came

It was like a cat and mouse game

So it all ends the same.

Now I’ve embraced my alone-ness

No longer scared of sadness

Commitment is on the past for me

For I had hoped before

And I think that’s enough, even more

Hopelessly Hopeful

Despite the odds

Despite my numbered days

I look for hope, for happiness

I accept the hurtful fact

But at the back of my mind

I continue to think of good news

I’m not trying to be naive

But where others see hopelessness

I see a shining ray of hope at the end of this colored rainbow of mine
