All Hopes Against Hope

Rating: 4.8

All hopes dash against hopes
It is like tight walking on simple ropes
We may counter stiff resistance at high slope
Bonding may not be possible even if you elope

Power suddenly may fail and hopes may dash
Life too can end if you make driving rash
Business too may fail with crunch in cash
Credit may be lost even if you attempt fresh

With slow rising of Sun dark clouds may go
Money lenders may relent and make debt to forgo
All good sign and luck may be smiling again
Life should start fresh with little gain,

Nothing goes wrong with smooth sailing,
Sentence may not be severe even fail in bailing
Failure in vigilance may result in trailing,
Gain will be more with best opportunity availing,

Future may be disappointing and chances fade away
Life is live game and not as children play
Things may turn wrong even with trying of best efforts
Luck will not smile even when you have good rapports

Sun may go up with its destined time
Target we should set as our object prime
Luck may not favor but not let us down,
Plant will come up when seeds are sown

the strong rhyming is carefully chosen and perfect. Never lose hope for there are lots of them beyond the horizon or at the end of a rainbow there's pot of gold.. Keep moving on for hope is just around the corner. As long as you live, as long as there's life, there's hope. Well done, mate.

The poem shows path how to be optimistic under trying circumstances.It is very important to always derive some gleams of hope irrespective of the criticality of the situation.Nicely written.

Life is not child's game to play - well emphasized in tone at this point. And in last line you seem to believe more than a little in the influence of destiny or karma. If so, I concur, though the actual truth must be beyond our capability of understanding. Good listing.

I like this hopeful poem! As long as we can feel the least hope - there is life! As long as we can feel the least life - there is hope! It works both ways... It´s important to accept that life can be bad even if we do our very best. This poem is written in a easy-to-read, very gentle way. Please, read my WISDOM...
