(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Fringes of Hope.

Torn as it's edge is, I have sworn always
To apprehend hope. Glazed with eyes blinded
By hurt, hope only can bind up loose frays
And render the future reasonably kind.

Hope sings it's own song loudly, forcibly
Too, for anyone who wants impressions
Of what can heal stress, and looks at causes
For mend. Hope can then yet achieve success.

Unravelling life can damage fringes
Of hope, but never blows totally dry
The freshest outlook. A mind-set unhinged
Without hope can cower in much sighing.

Lean then on strong hope, experience re-birth
Of delight, - quite the best feeling on earth.

    When all is lost and no one around
    your heartbeat, the only sound
    In the blackest hole the smallest light
    Hope! give's the strength to fight

    An excellent extended metaphor - love the fringes, frays and unravellings - and the message is spot on. S ;)
