Shattered Hope

Written by: Modupe Sefunmi

What happens to a shattered hope?

Does it break into pieces
like a broken glass?

Or gather wings like a bird
And then fly away?

Does it burst like a deflated balloon
or shine brightly and beautifully,
like a full moon?

Maybe it just lost hope
like a helpless trapped animal?

Or does it fall dead?
