#NaPoWriMo Day 2: Hope.

A mere four-lettered word,
Wraps around, as though a warm embrace,
Wipes away those painful tears.
It’s the sigh of relief;
It’s Hope.

The silver-lining to a cloud,
The slightest possibility of happiness,
Those voices in our heads
Constantly reassuring and encouraging–
That, my friend, is Hope.

The promise of a better tomorrow,
And the strength to face our demons.
Seeing there’s more than just Black and White,
A Yin to every Yang–
That new perspective is Hope.

Knowing that we will smile again,
Feel the all-consuming kind of love again,
Laugh again, dance in the rain,
Forget our pain–
This feeling of joy is what we call ‘Hope’.

Hey everyone! In the spirit of National Poetry Writing Month, I will be writing some poems for every day of April. Each Day will have a new prompt. I hope I can keep up with the challenge. You can join me in celebrating #NaPoWriMo 2019 and check out the prompts here. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly,

The Shubhster.
