Despair Poem by Esther Leclerc


Rating: 5.0

hope dies hard, it is said
always I agreed
knowing this truth for myself
comes a point in the
scheme of things when
the strangling is complete
and so
hope expires because the
subject herself is dead
whether she breathes or
not is beside the point

(7.5.06 - Live on in hope, Little Spirit)

Ah yes, so true, though I try to hang on to those little threads as much as I can. 20 minutes from the beach, eh? Take a deep breath of fresh air for me, okay? Thanks for this one, Lori

Esther, a very profound ending statement... once we give up on hope, we've given up on life. A somber yet powerful write... well done. Brian

I don't know the story behind this, Esther, but it is so oddly despairing that it is disquieting and sad. Well written and sad. Scarlett

Another deep one, Esther, but graphically to the point, without any unnecessary 'tarting up'. I like this a lot :) Hugz jack :)
