Prisoners of Hope

Again and again,
dragging and pushing
living and dying
all at once.
keep on going.
flash a smile
hide a frown
push back tears
pull sleeves down.
this is life,
wishing for death.
this is existence,
afraid of life.
don’t come in,
doors are blocked,
windows are locked.
sadness runs deep,
hate takes control.
all good goes,
friends lose hope.
sleep is elusive
pain is how to cope.
