The dead hope

The light that gleams 
on the palm,
Flashes into my dull 
Eyes, that are dull, 
don't let it touch my 
My heart is drowned 
in the dark shadows 
of sorrows,
It wants the light of 
hope, of love and 
What shall I do? 
When all hopes 've 
already died,
The light that passes 
through the shivering 
green leaves,
Does not reach my 
heart, only reflects on 
my eyes.
Light is free, but not 
my heart,
My heart is chained 
with the chains of 
The chains that bound 
it with force unkown,
Will be broken 
someday, must be 
shattered I hope,
I hope against the 
hope, though all the 
hopes are dead,
Yes, I know! I know, 
that all hopes are

    Hashim, you described the light in your deep eye with great imagery. However it is light going down a long way... and i don't think all hope is lost... love it... Linda
