Hope

by Ebenezer Mowete


The day's over

The curtains closing

I'm down and sober

But I'll keep waiting


Waiting for a chance

Looking for an opportunity

A moment of wonder and dance

An opening for peace and serenity

H.O.P.E; Holding On Patiently Eternally

Though things around look bleak

Yet I would look forward meekly

Never will my bank of expectations leak


This world won't keep me down

My dreams forever will soar

Neglecting anything that seeks me to drown

Wait a moment so you hear me roar


Circumstances do not define me

Nothing in my habitat can restrain

Pressing on through life's deep sea

I'll be a jolly traveller on the Earth's train


People may write me off

But I'll rise up

I won't give in to their rebuff

I'll have reason to raise my trophies and my cup


Hanging to every wish I make

Believing in all the dreams I close my eyes to see

I know I'll never break

Hope is what holds it all through eternity
