Prompt Twenty-Four – Because they Hope

Prompt Twenty-four – Text Prompt – Write a poem about hope.


Because they Hope


Hope is the best there is.

Was she not the last one out of Pandora’s box?

There is always hope, even against hope.

Till the end, till the very last breath.

Goals have been scored a second before the referee’s whistle.

Because they hoped.

Children rescued from earthquake rubble after weeks.

Because they hoped.

Folk rising from coma after showing Grim Reaper the door.

Because there was hope.

Fishermen returning to land after a stormy night at sea.

Because they hoped.

Soldiers walking away unscathed from the battlefield.

Because there was hope.

And when you join your palms as you hope

There will always be Hope.
