Blindness

They say, "love is blind"
Well so is hope.

Hope is blind.
Unafraid of darkness
Unperturbed by danger
Unmoved by failure
Hope is blind.

And there in the darkest night
There at the pinnacle of failure
There surrounded by enemies
Hope lives on.

Hope is defiant and lasting
And for as long as you hold on to hope
Hope holds on to you.

No tunnel goes forever
No valley or gorge is without bottom
Every ocean has a shore
And the sun will rise
For a million years more.

  1. Life just wouldn't be worth living., if we didn't have even the slightest glimmer of hope.
    Nicely done.

  2. Very well said. Hope keeps us going when others give up. Where there is life, there is hope.

  5. fun word play...

    love is blind at times, so does hope.

    hope to love,
    love to keep hope alive.

  6. If I have but one mantra, It is to never give up hope.
    So you can imagine what your poem means to me.

    Thank you.
