HOPE: a Poem by Ekimini Joseph



















Hope,
is like walking on a tight rope,
because it evolves on a probability;
which is embodied by a possibility.

Hope,
is like walking in the dark- you grope,
it is full of unknown expectation,
which may be quick or end in procrastination.

Hope,
at times comes along with probe,
since it's full of striking desire;
when you think 'bout it, it seems you're on fire.

Hope,
comes into reality when you have 'bility to cope,
uncommon tides of hard times,
which always taste like sour limes.

Hope,
can make you lope
when you're filled with imagination,
in a make believe aspiration.

Hope,
have turn'd many to tope,
because they feel happy through expectant belief;
which, when not achiev'd, makes them grief.

Hope,
is always like walking on a tight rope,
because you achieve,
only when you anticipate and above all BELIEVE!
