Hope Against Hope


poem, hope, adedamola, writing, prompt, Readersketch, life, sits

From life's first witness
Comes death's deal;

Wandering wonder of sixth day,
Dog-eared will and brutal poverty.

Talk of days to come -
End birth in a beginning.

Or what do we do,
When fears of
a threadbare tomorrow,
Snakes into today's thread
of hopeful sighs?

Virtual future battles battered reality:
Weak kneed and sad eyed;
Reading future of hope lost.

We sit at feast;
Downcast, unable to hope anymore:
As the day's hope sits at table with uncertainty.

Shall we, then, say the grace;
In hope that today's hardwork,
Pays-off tomorrow?
