Hope

I make myself a noose of despair
as I stand on this chair made of hope;
I fix the noose around my neck
and pull taut on the rope.

As I kick hope away, despair grabs my throat
causing my neck to give;
Because without hope, despair always wins
killing the spirit to live.

It's good but I disagree with the phrase "without hope, dispair always wins". Why will remain a mystery.

Very Good Poem Though! Smiley
