Hope Or Hope Against Hope - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Hope is an expectation or
Desire for certain event,
It relates to persons, things
Or to circumstances it is inherent.

Not only men but also animal
And birds, reptiles have hope,
All live on hope or hope against hope
Hopeless persons have no scope.

Men live in hope and
In hope they dream,
To dream many lovely things
Is too dream of a team.

Hope is the reason of attachment
And it is the art,
It is too reason of detachment
And it is the heart.

Maximum people hope to get
Perishable things they want,
But these are such things
Those bring men daunt.

Hope to lead valuable life
And value in life is the best,
We must hope peace and bless of God
There actually are the zests.

    Lovely poem...10
    Had it been secured journey?
    Person should have taken it lightly
    Slept well with whatever was available
    And become lazy sans struggle

    All live on hope or hope against hope.

    Very rightly said. Sometimes though the light of hope is extinguished yet we live on in hope. A beautiful poem.
