Hope & Despair

Hope and Despair travelled the road,

They walked side by side.

Sometimes Despair rushed along

Hope would appear to hide.

Despair would race

At superhuman pace

Leaving hope without a trace,

Despair arrived in a lonely place.

Despair panicked, Calling out for Hope

Despair gasped for breath, feeling he’d choke.

Hope wasn’t far behind

But Despair in his panic blind

Couldn’t see Hope,

He couldn’t find.

Hope gently touched Despair.

Despair was glad Hope was there.
