Chitrangada loves to express her moods and emotions, through her poems. Most of her poems are free style and spontaneous with Nature at core

Sunrise—New day, New Hopes

Sunrise—New day, New Hopes

Word prompt—Hope

This poem is in response to Brenda’s weekly word prompts challenge.
Brenda is a dear friend and a fellow writer. She is a talented poet, and you can find her creative work on HubPages and various other online writing platforms.
I agree with her, when she says that word prompts encourage creativity.
Many writers are publishing excellent creative work, in response to her weekly challenge.

I do believe that Hope, keeps us going. I have experienced it throughout my life.

We should hold on to Hope, because it makes us believe in ourselves. That you are strong, capable, and able to meet the challenges of life.

I hope you like my response, Brenda.

Hope Keeps Me Going—Poem

Another day of suffering,
And, I survived—
Because, I had ‘hope’—

The time was tough,
The path was rough,

But, I believed in me,
Better days will be, will be,
Because, I had ‘Hope’—

Sadness and failure,
Did not let me deter,

Another dawn, another possibility,
Reassured me of my ability,
Because, I had hope—

I refused to fail,
I kept trying like a snail,
Because, I had ‘Hope’—


The clouds have silver lining for a reason.

The clouds have silver lining for a reason.
