Over the last few months of my life
I was facing a dilemma.
Torn between hopelessness and despair
each pulling me down
when I wanted to rise.
I was free of the plague called “hope”
but it stepped through me like a virus
I was content without it
but my heart has affinity with it
even though it was responsible for it’s tear and rip !
Against my will
I saw the sun
Against my choice
I found my pulse
and against my reluctance
I felt hope in me
