Hope, my friend

A reason to be

To wake up and believe

A reason to try again

To smile again

Hope, my enemy

A reason I can't move on

Too torn to move

A reason that make me try again

When we know there is no gain


The two faced friend

To keep or to lose

Nice one...having hope can be a friend. Hopefully it doesn't lead you to hate hoping for things.

Making it an enemy.

You have beautifully expressed the two faces of hope. I too especially loved reading the last verse.

Elegantly described the two sides. Amazing painting too.

You have portrayed the two sides to hope really well, and I particularly enjoyed the last verse. Great drawing.
