Hope is just the lies
I tell myself
Hope tells me tomorrow
Will be better then today
So I don't cry myself to sleep
Hope whispers that next time
I'll do things right
When I only make it worse
Hope says that everything will be alright
When I know it won't be
Hope promises that there is a perfect
Person for me and that one day
I'll find that person
Hope shouts that one day
I'll do great things
And will always be rememebered
So that I'll never truely die
Hope sings of a better place
When there isn't one
Hope mocks that it could be worse
But most of the time
I'd do anything to not be me
Hope is merely a lie
But that's okay
Because a lot of things are lies

I totally understand. Some days it seems like hope is just a delusion to make ourselves feel better...

I rather try to be honest with myself, although it's a hopless effort.

That's a very well written poem. I like your concept of hope and how you presented it.

not only a lie, but a torturer and deceiver

all of the hopes we get, will most likely break you down to chopsized bits

i don't give in to hope, let alone light

if there's anything i have learned, it's that darkness always prevails

and that dark embrace is more rewarding

then lights broken promises

i like your poem alot !

This really hit close to home for me... in a way, almost too close, but I'm glad it did all the same. This poem was simplistic in agony and innocence, yet there was maturity and still optimism despite the bad things in life. It really reminded me why I want to keep smiling, despite if it's raining or I've given up.... because in the end, hope does make it okay, even if we have to lie to get ourselves there; once there, there is beauty and even more hope for truth.

Thank you for posting... I cannot express how much this touched me, but I hope my comment has given an idea. :rose:

A lovely poem, dear, and most of us have felt that at one time or another. When you reach the point of being willing just to be you, you will find that hope was not a lie, but the truth you always knew behind all the doubts and fears. Good luck, and keep writing!

I don't know how you would react and I don't want to be annoying, but I'll say it. What you hope for is actually reachable, but if you give it to Jesus and turn to Him for help.
