I move on...
Exhaustion plagues me
comes to my heart.
Taking my broken hopes,
heavy the bundle,
upon my weak shoulders.
I proceed slowly
stumbling as I go.

am not a really poet and not a very good one either but for a child who doesnt know how to read poems YOUR POEMS ARE ONE OF A KIND! you were born to do it and i like the way u explain stuff you always look deep in every thing
A new way of putting how one feels when most loving hope happens to break and make us to live with it without our will in it.Beautifully brought out the pain of the heart in the few lines from the depth of a feeling heart. Winnie
Nice poem, although its short, but i really like the deep feelings these words reflect..
Broken hope to carry requires grit and in short you’ve done that …and it like keeping hope alive in next phase Voted 10 Ms. Nivedita UK
