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.

    This is so touching and I am speechless, good luck for the contest :D

    You did real well..check the last 4 lines which pattern did you want f/a/F/A?

    Thanks again, I modified the last stanza. Check out my new poem Inspiration. My second attempt.

    This is amazing Richard! It flows so well. It's interesting how poets incorporate their own voice into the writing, it is a hard task. Very well done!

    Thanks Vicky, this one took a bit of work but with the help of a few friends I got the hang of a new style. I left home early so never received an education in writing poetry. Coming to this community is expanding my knowledge.
  1. Date: 11/15/2012 5:38:00 PM

    New poet friend you have the rhyme pattern off this is a tricky one [aBA or ABA, bCB, cDC, dED, eFE, then faFA or fFaA.] # your lines it helps line 2 which is the first 'b' so its REPEATED as shown by the capital B MUST be repeated in its entirety as line 6, line 2 must rhyme with line 4...I will try to soup mail you. Light & Love

    Thanks Anne, can I get you on the judges list???
  1. Date: 11/14/2012 7:46:00 PM

    Richard, i feel no material can explain all that exist in this universe. Hopelessness is a weak emotion, in which can always be overpowered by the freedom we find when we seek out and follow the lord. Good luck in the contest...always~pd

    Certainly beyond our limited understanding but no reason to stop trying. As always thanks for commenting Linda. Have a good night. PS don't worry I am not depressed, just being creative.
