Of Lost Hopes

Hope is easy
When you’re young.
The world hasn’t
Chewed you up and
Spit you out yet.
Your beliefs are unwavering,
Your faith is strong.

And then you get hurt.
You stand back up,
Only to be knocked down again.
And again.
And again.

Suddenly, hope isn’t easy anymore,
Nothing is.
But there’s a lesson to be learnt here.
Nothing lasts forever.
Everything breaks down,
Just to be rebuilt,
And then broken down again.

Just like happiness,
Just like sorrow.
Just like hope,
Just like despair.

So have a little hope.
What’s hurting you now,
Won’t hurt you forever.
Once you learn that,
Hope is easy once again.
