There is a light that I ever reach for
In the dark it is all that I have
Though I know I may never reach it
To turn away, all around me is black
Somewhere I hear a stream bubbling
And I thirst like few ever have
In the thickets I stumble, searching
Though I know I may not find its path
And I hunger so very deeply
As I smell a feast riding the winds
I am driven, constantly seeking
To despair I cannot give in
It is hope this thing that I cling to
Like the blood in my very veins
It pounds in me, coursing my rivers
Singing ever a soothing strain
Perhaps one day I will find it
I will drink deep of the light I seek
Though if always in darkness I fumble
It is with hope in that gloom I speak

Author's Notes: Life is beating the ever living hell out of me right now. I can cave and wallow or I can hold on to hope...
I choose hope, knowing full well that it may not lead me where I want it to. The alternative is nothingness. Hope alone will not get me anywhere either, that is why the poem focuses on themes of movement and searching. One must move and seek, not sit idly by and wait for what the world hands you.
Just my 2 cents anyways!
