Hope and Despair
by Alchemy & Ashes
Age Group: Adult
We are born unto the grave
And to our hearts become the slave
Whether fortune, fate, or destiny
I give to you this piece of me~
A broken heart may breed contempt
And lovers lost left to resent
Time is not what heals the ache
But binds us to our whipping stake
A forsaken heart may feel itís free
Is not oppressed by anotherís plea
But in the night, if truth be told
Loneliness is the hand it holds
A cold heart never will reveal
The pain itís iciness does conceal
Overshadowed by a bitter frost
Remembered by the paths itís crossed
A black heart, dead and turned to stone
Does not reach out for the unknown
Itís passions purged by suffering
Itís bloodless flesh feels not the sting
Misfortune jades the innocent eye
And leaves you then to live itís lie
But if in this dark you seek the light
You twist your fate from wrong to right
Beware of paths that seem laid clear
They leave you with no ship to steer
For the road you walk is yours to seek
Your compass points are themselves unique
Be not misled by deeds once done
The slate is cleaned by the rising Sun
Itís not perfection where wisdom is earned
But in our mistakes and lessons learned
Truth is held in a hopeful hand
And leads the seas back to the sand
Of all these words, on this depend
Love is the means to the end
