Where There Is Hope There Is Hope


All my life
I've creeped out of sorrows
I've crawled out of dissapointments
I've held on to broken dreams
I've lay on an empty belly, having chewed on
water just to save my teeth from turning
disfunctional
Yet i've learnt not to curse a dawn as it brings
me life
I've learnt that every new day is a gift, as it
presents me a fate i have to unravel
best i've learnt to smile through all this
I've lived on hope of a hope
of a change in fortune
my good friend sowed hope in me
she said, 'friend where there is hope there is
hope.'
