When Hope Departs

A positive mental attitude, can be overcome.. Be patient.

A positive mental attitude, can be overcome.. Be patient.

When Hope Departs

 

Wherein lies the good hope

when the truth is shown,

with all doubt removed

to face one’s mirror own?

 *

What purpose has it then

to dream beyond the real,

while knowing in the heart

that hope has lost all zeal?

When the image mirrored back

can no longer be denied,

to believe beyond the fact

then to yourself, you’ve lied.
