Hope – A Poem

Between despair,
And longing,
Floating defiantly above hatred,
Fighting for actuality,
Mocking our desire,
And wrestling our needs,
Lies our impervious mind,
The greatest war is within,
Dancing between good and evil,
And when all is lost,
And whence darkness casts itself upon us,
And there are but embers to light the path,
Our shadow walks with us,
It never leaves our side,
It guides us,
It provides sustenance,
To our aching souls,
It is stronger than fear,
And it reveals itself in our dire moments,
Our saviour,
Hope.
