Hoping For Hope - Poem by Thomas Viruvelil

Do I want to live?
To live I need hopes
Do I have hopes?
No.
Then why I do not die?
Is that so simple like buying
something?
Just go to a shop and say
I want to die
Pay the money wait for my turn
as there is bound to be
a waiting list
to die.

Then all that I can do
is to pray for hopes.
To make me alive
Living day after day
hoping for hopes
and suffer day after day
hoping for hopes.
