Sheltering The Eggshell Of Hope** - Poem by Frank Lisa IndiRa Francesca Roger Platt Cornish Martin

With my mind's eye going blind
and my vision rummaging for refuge
in abyss of ignorance
hope is running amuck
looking for the first ajar door
to escape from this naked brutal
truth never to return from Never land
of numbness


**Read it after reading Wardha Jawdat’s 'Just another day in paradise? '
