Hope




Hopes are the foundations of the castles we build
    Sometimes in the air and other times in real
A ray of hope brings joy even in face of surreal
    Hope is the last straw we like to cling on
When all is lost, dark, haplessness descends
We ride on hope to pull us out from quagmire
Hoping against all hopes when the danger is real

  17. Hope keeps one going. As you have said either castles in air or real, does not matter.
    To a sinking man a floating straw is the hope. No, not that it has enough strength to support you, but it may teach you enough that you learn to remain afloat.
    Good one !!

  24. Reminds me of Emily Dickinson's
    "Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune--without the words,
    And never stops at all,".....
    The lucidity of the lines so well resonates with the feeling of hope here:) Nice poetry!

  27. Yes, never lose hope in life... It reminds me of a quote "When the world says 'Give up', Hope whispers 'Try it one more time'"

    Its the riding factor which guides us towards the light at the end of the tunnel! Great post Rahul-ji :)

    Cheers,
    Anand.
