In A Hopeless Place - Poem by Harcourt Noble

I was abandoned, I was thrown away
In my house i was a visitor
In my family I was a stranger
In my Land i was an outcast

I left for an unknown place
A place worse than a slum
A place for refugees
So i wept when i see my people enjoy

In my situation, In my plight
I saw my world
I saw my Life
And my soul illuminated

At evening when the night sun shone
When I sat to behold it's colour
She passed before my eyes
And behold, I fell in love

I was glad when i saw her
but not in the place in saw her
She was deserted just like me
Although not why

I met her in a hopeless place.
