No One Is Hopeless

Rosualdo is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary God, who wants to spread God’s words and love through writing articles and poems.


But God will never forget the needy;
the hope of the afflicted will never perish. (Psalm 9:18 NIV)

When hope has gone, despair began to manipulate

as a broken-hearted soul looking for comfort

searching and grasping for the light to illuminate

in the gloomy and vague journey of grieve transport

Despair is my new intruding and stay-in companion

hugging and kissing like a fresh detested lover

dominating my exhausted heart with the rule of pain and irritation

and wanting and wishing to live and breath forever

It injected my being with the syringe of affliction and misery

imprisoned me in the labyrinth of mental and emotional unrest

exterminating my inner strength with immense agony

and weakening my confidence and put it to sleep and rest

But when I notice the bright and luminous sunup

whispering in wind a message of a strong hope

my whole being desires to battle and be lifted up

and to break out from despair’s tangling and trapping rope

When I lift my eyes and attention to heaven

with courage and faith for a longing deliverance

God stretches out his hands to help and regain

my hope and strength to fight despair’s annoyance

Now I learned the wonderful and valuable lesson

that no one is hopeless if he knows the God of hope

keeping and using the faith in every painful occasion

for victory will always reside in the side of those who cope
