Hope - Poem by Francis Duggan

You feel like one lost in a deep dark tunnel
And you call for help and in the darkness grope
For a way out of the blackness that engulf you
And the only thing that gives you strength is hope.

The hope that keeps you going on through your hard times
It is your only friend against despair
Your dream of happiness and success now seem broken
But a broken dream is not beyond repair.

You feel that everybody is against you
And with simple problems now you cannot cope
But there is always one willing to help you
And to give you inspiration strength and hope.

And remember everyone is not against you
Though you only can see enemies about
Your circumstances seem to cloud your judgement
And you still have friends though you feel down and out.

You feel now that the whole world is against you
And that you are sliding down the loser's slope
But there are people out there who will help you
And through the dark will shine the ray of hope..
