A Chance Taken

I took a chance,
 and hope was duly murdered.
 Lovely dreams were scattered,
 a hopeless creature prowling.
 Anger replaced by sorrow,
 and then remains an emptiness.
 Yet even after such heartbreak
 there is a revived hope.
 Like a phoenix from the ashes
 shall rise with new life
 a reborn hope.
 I will try again,
 despite the hurt inside.
