Poem on Hope: What By Ramon Yusuf
What makes a man with an empty stomach keep smiling?
The unseen future called Hope
What makes a man leave his home in search of unplanted food?
The uncertain assurance called Hope
What makes a man thinks that drugs can cure illnesses?
Confidence initiated by the remembrance of Hope
What makes a lad read his books though his educated parent is poor?
The belief in an anticipated tomorrow filled with Hope
What drives our ancestors to form a nation?
A foreseen peaceful world guaranteed by Hope
What is that one word that binds us with an invisible rope?
The bondage of the word Hope
What keeps you going when you want to give up?
The belief that there are better days ahead stimulated by Hope
Things will always be difficult
But we are going to survive if only we have Hope
Remember, at the end of the tunnel
There is a light of Hope
