Without Hope's Gleam

The flower that is given little light tastes not enough of joy and cannot thrive - then fades away like dusk into the night. The soul who struggles just to stay alive - much like the flower wilting in the dark - tastes not enough of joy and cannot thrive. How can a fire be lit if there’s no spark? Without hope’s gleam, the soul will waste away - much like the flower wilting in the dark. This is the plight of one whose world is grey: Though others say a paradise exists - without hopes gleam, the soul will waste away. A man upon this earth who tastes no bliss is like a soul brought low who droops his head though others say a paradise exists. How sad that someone rather would be dead! The flower that is given little light is like a soul brought low who droops his head, then fades away . . . like dusk into the night. Written 11/15/12 For the "Hope" Poetry Contest of Craig Cornish and now for the contest of Nathan A

    This had me from the very beginning. So much insight and love throughout. An empty soul waits to be filled. But sadly, most only get billed. They can't afford to pay the price. Sad and hurt, it's hard to be nice. They search inside devoid of pride. Await their turn to ride. But time don't wait for any man. When they've already slid the slide. Congrats on your win Andrea. This is definately one of my favorites by you. Hug's.
