Hope

Do you believe in hope, do you think it is important to have hope in life?What happens if there is no hope in life? Read the poem below and let me know your views.

THE LAST LEAF

The old violin in my heart is
Frozen on this winter and
I can hear only noise; no music,
And the lyric of my life is stolen.


My tender heart is aching and I am
Just like a last leaf in the autumn
Tree, ready to fall on any day and
My mind is floating like a feather


I am holding on to a falling branch
Of a huge tree and I don’t know the
Depth, or the distance I have to travel,
Or to jump to reach the earth as it is


Too dark and cold down there
The wind is so strong and I am
Trembling like a little grass in rain,
Still my dreams are flying up like a

Colourful kite which dance and
Plays with the angels in the sky.
Is it hope leading my life? Or maybe,
I am a hopeless daydreamer.

The poem is good and I understand how you feel and what you are saying. My poems are all written about events in my life that actually happened. I have not added any extra facts to them. I use my poetry as therapy. I write about an event and then I am ready to move on. It has helped me tremendously. Keep up the good work.

" Is it hope leading my life? Or maybe, I am a hopeless daydreamer."

I love this line it reflects my sentiments exactly.

Read Leo Buscaglia's "The Fall of Freddie the Leaf." You will see that your message in the poem here reflects the emotions set forth in his short childern's story.

I love your site and will visit often.

Thank you sylvia, I too believe that poetry is a form of therapy to heal our mind.Because it is self expression to a certain extent, it is our innermost response to agony or happiness or what ever.I usually write symbolic poems.i will visit your blog as i like your poems

hi dave
Thank you for visiting and analysing my poem.i like the same two lines in my poem.Because it shows the helplessness of poor and weak human heart and its tendency to doubt the God's protection in times of difficulties.I will read the book you suggested.i will visit your blog.
