    Hope Never Says Die

    On this journey I'm tired
    from walking...
    My destination is out of sight
    over the horizon...
    The prize lies in a self-concept
    without despising...
    At times begging for a
    reintegration into civilization,

    hands closed always,
    My minds perception,
    Journeyed too long
    there'll be no accepting...
    so choices are start
    accepting...
    Or live a life where
    hopes are neglected,
    So many mirages
    I see and run,
    But turn to serpents when
    inspected,
    Thirst and fatigue
    plague me,
    Spinning 365 degrees
    screaming WHY ME!

    In barren land
    without a compass in hand,
    On uncontrollable reality I'm
    constantly making demands....
    Outcomes could never bow
    to my whims....
    Yet as if I was creator of my reality I bode
    to reshape it from within,

    repeating...
    persisting...
    maintaining...

    As if an extra limb without purpose
    throws my balance,
    Half way through amputation I stop
    as if disturbed by the silence,

    Shall I sit on the
    the desert floor,
    Pretending the thirst calls
    no more,
    Until my palate
    dries,
    No longer needing
    refreshments...
    to enjoy the beautiful sun
    beating down upon me
    from above,
    As I lay down
    beside the city
    gates.

    Yes sometimes hope does seem to be a mirage, but somehow, someway, we keep fighting, and we succeed. I felt the struggle and will power in this flow poet.
