<<<<<Hope


Hope is a cheater
I am deceived by it many times
Once it had seated me
On a branch of a fig tree
And waited me for long
For the flowers
It would bloom

Another day it had laid me
On a corner of a bed
And waited me for long
For the milk of love
It would bring from the butts of a hen

At the end
I had given nothing
Neither flowers nor milk
I was a fool and now feel guilty
To be too indulgent with it.
