"Hope" is the only hope left....

I have always heard that  "Man makes his life himself", A wise man never blames the elements like "Luck and fortune" on his failures,and in case of "success" it is only his strength and power.But, i disagree, if it was the case no one would be a failure, no one would curse on his sufferings and the world would be much a better place than it is now,and above all, there would be no importance of " HOPE" at all.
I believe for many people "hope" works as the beam of light in the days of grim.It encourages them to live the remaining days of life with peace of  heart and mind,and make us wait for the shadow-of-happiness peacefully.

Last night i was wondering the same, and few stanzas  jumbled in my mind.I've given those stanzas a proper final form.This time i have taken care for the poem's rhythm and have repeated the first two lines after every eight lines.It was a bit difficult but anyway here it is:

"Hope" is the only hope left,
 For me it is the only wealth,
 When nothing is there,
 Still hope survives,
 Among all the sorrows,
 It gives us joys,
 Feeling isolated and,
 Feeling all alone,
 No one to pat and,
 No one to console
 "Hope" is the only hope left,
  For me it is the only wealth.
 The bright sunny days,
 And the dark cloudy nights,
 A pillow to hug me,
 And a friend to wipe eyes.
 Everything has limits,
 So does the hope too,
 A morning is  there,
 After every scary night
"Hope" is the only hope left
 For me it is the only wealth
 We are growing old, and
 The eyes losing sight,
 O God,Stop it,
 Please hear my cries!
 A dull weak heart, and
 The shaking raised hands
 Praises to God,
 To let the fears end...
 "Hope" is the only hope left
 For me it is the only wealth..

P.S : Please suggest me how to make it more proper, and if any mistakes guide me to correct them.

Dear ReeBz,

YES, you did it --turned a true sorrow into the other side. I'm so glad I didn't miss this. Funny how this very day, what with being at the Aafia trial, I've been considering the same in the worst scenario any of this can turn such sadness into hope.

I see that Shafique Sahib is doing so with the Garden of Poets -- have you seen that yet? Although it's complicated like writing a poem of this nature you've just rewards by the time spent.

Soon I want to share with you some more hope...but will be tied up for a few will you remind me by email about the little Rumi book and also look up my family profile on facebook?

Although I oft forget, I came to be a writer FIRST through writing poetry as a young child.

Keep up this talent. It's so satisfying.

ReeBz said...

"Hope" is the only hope left,
For me it is the only wealth.
The bright sunny days,
And the dark cloudy nights,
A pillow to hug me,
And a friend to wipe eyes.
Everything has limits,
So does the hope too,
A morning is there,
After every scary night

In love with these lines. Awesome.

ReeBz said...

Alam, thanks.

Desire still lives on, though duped by love. The dense smog of memories blurs out all else. Yet, there remains hope - Indestructible (unless one’s minded to sin). When fate causes suffering through debilitation then indestructible hope becomes useless. After all fate’s perhaps more powerful, in fact I think that it is big time.

ReeBz said...

Rehan Qayyoum:
Its true how beautifully you have explained it even more.Impressive.
Thanks for passing by!
