The song of Hope

Like a black leech
Its strangle hold
Is now at a point
Where I cannot
Catch my breath
It consumes my
Every thought
My spirit
Withers
And my soul has
Fled to a place
I can no longer reach

A tangled fishing net
A highway with
No end in sight
This is my nemesis
That my mind
Can no longer fathom
For
The fire is such
That all oxygen
Has been sucked
From my existence
And I am that
Flailing fish with
Pursed lips
Left
Gasping for my life

My question
Is this an imagining
Forsooth I feel it true
And yet
It cannot be seen

So I hold onto
My final breath
Of what might come;
This is faith
Buried so deep,
A mantra that sings
“I shall not give up
I cannot be taken
For Hope is truly mine.”
