Hope

Hope

by Pinky Lui

 

it creeps up

way into our heads

what an inception

a willing deception

 

it tells what I can do

to fly I only need wings

I am invincible

Diana with her bow of flame

bull’s eye at first try

 

it casts light

onto the shadow of my mind

all the what-ifs and probably-nots

it pushes me to stand

and over the cliff

 

Pandora drops the box

they all scatter

the chaos then is within us

but it reassures

 

even the omnipotent God

waited

until Satan arose once more

to struck him down again

the heavenly house of mirth

the hellish hollow of the fallen

 

it lures you to

the very top

three, two, one.

 

those whose bones are shattered

feel no pain

the agony is inside

knowing hope

lies

where all demons reside
