A lump of hope

Sometimes we’re left

with a lump of hope

on our hearts

And it is all

we have

All we get to put in

All we pull our smiles from

and everything we live for

Sometimes we’re left

with a lump of hope

on our hearts

making it hard to swallow

all the portions

of bitterness

making it hard to chew down

all portions of fear

we get thrown down

our breath

Sometimes

a lump of hope

is all we’ve got

Smirk

And I enjoyed the darkness
You delivered me into
The cold, damp unknown
I felt united with
The chance to trip over obscure objects
And giggle into the lonely night
The risk to face demons,
Face to face
And either grin and scare them
With my ‘booh’
Or get scared and run as far as my breath could take me

You made me
I would have never become this fast
And so strong
If you hadn’t exposed me
To the depth of my potential
