The h2g2 Poem

Hope and Despair

And so I return

After so long away.

To look at the feelings

I had yesterday.

Too long have I waited

And hoped for respite,

Too long in this world

So full of fight.

For the light is fading

And the shadows draw near.

Can I survive

Yet another year?

The world has gone mad

With acts of aggression

But I still hope and pray

For some sort of regression.

Look beyond the fight

Look beyond the earth!

At the end of it all

What are we worth?

A handful of dust

An ocean of tears

A pocketful of hopes

Dashed by our fears.

Wake up you leaders!

You toy with our being

See through the lies

And just start believing.
