Hope

I do believe that hope has an extraordinary character ……

A passionate one…..Just like the warm

blazing sun…

It’s a faith that tommorow might be better……

Or that  there would be different circumstances sooner or later…..

In the darkest room it’s like a frail bulb dangling in the corner…..

Flickering continuously, yet as much alive……

It’s like an ugly desert cactus at its crucial times….

Trying all means to sustain and strive…..

At unforgiving winter nights like these….

It’s like a warm flame…..

Which makes the ragged man at the roadside battle out loneliness…..

It’s not just a word with a thousand meaning claimed ….

Rather a profound sense of truth making our reality an obscure mess…..

It does not only have the power to alter faith….

Rather making us believe that there exist another way till the last breathe…..
