Hoplessness Beyond Hope

I wonder what Entity brought me here
Feeling all alone in this great darkness
I am sinking, overwhelmed with such fear

Is there any hope for me to harness?
Caged inside a place that shouldn't exist
Feeling all alone in this great darkness

Will you remove these shackles from my wrists?
Here I am trapped, wanting to be set free
Caged inside a place that shouldn't exist

Please don't see me as the enemy
Do not remain deaf to my suffering
Here I am trapped, wanting to be set free

I feel like I am endlessly falling
Can it be I have used up my last chance?
Do not remain deaf to my suffering?


Is that your light I see in the distance?
I wonder what Entity brought me here?
Can it be I have used up my last chance?
I am sinking, overwhelmed with such fear

Craig Cornish's Hope Contest

    wow, I love this one. The title is similar to one I was considering as I thought how to write for this contest in the beginning.But I ended up with a slightly different take. Hopelessness sure came to my mind first. Wonder what that shows about me. haha. (and you too) Congrats on your well deserved win.

    Thanks to you and with a bit of help from my friends I figured it out. Tried a few more, cheated a bit with one word on the last one. Poetic licence! Thanks again, enjoyed very much the challenge.
