A Long Walk To Redemption


They say the last thing to leave a man is hope
As he gets to the end of his struggling rope
His faith and believe gets to evaporates into the thin air
As he is faced with day time nightmare
Every beat from his troubling heart
Becomes a life line to his world that is torn apart
Living to him has no reason
As life passes with every season
His tears washing away all his unbearable pains
As he labors day and night in vain
Misery is the only available food to his soul
Frustration and sadness forms together to make it whole
In his world hate is a language that is always heard
And love is a word that is never said
Condemnation staring in his face like an imminent doom
As the rain of destruction looms
Death is not far from his doorstep
As fate numbers his footstep
Every of his hours, days, months and year
Is being lived in optimum fear
The taste of anguish swifting down his throat
As he sails through the storm of life in an empty boat
Nothing on earth is at it seem
As he walks through the land of his broken dreams
Stuck in the middle of nowhere
With no family or friend to care
His desire for good is the only thing keeping him going
The strive for survival keeping him rolling
The will to swim through life misery ocean
Without the dent or alteration of his human emotion
Drawing a line between wickedness and good intention
Seeking a peaceful path to human salvation
A path that will unite his past and future
All his pains and gains in a perfect mixture
To be able to build trust and to hope again
For better days ahead like a life in a moving train
To crawl out of the tunnel of temptation
Taking a long walk to human redemption

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
