I Dare

Without Hope

(image source: google.com/images)

When someone feels
they’re without hope

How in the world
can they ever cope?

When it’s ripped
at the seams

Where’s the hope
of fulfilling dreams?

When a life
is torn apart

Where is hope found
by the broken heart? 

Because it is
when hope’s lost

Will to live
it may cost

But if you can
just hold on

You will find out
that it’s not gone

It’s where you
have it hidden

For you feel
that it’s forbidden

‘Cause your heart
is broken in two

 So you think
God’s abandoned you

But your soul
knows it’s there

Just as He 
does truly care

 Your hope will
come back one day

And the world
will be not gray

So hold on
for all you’re worth

‘Cause hope exists
on this earth!!

For you, babygirl!
Ever on my mind 



Across these rocks I dance
with lost dreams of romance

I’m broken and forlorn
and I’m feeling very torn

Think no one will care
if I should so dare

Into the sea be thrown
and leave this life alone?

But if my life I take
will God my soul forsake?

So now I can’t decide
as I look into the tide

If suicide is a sin
what then will I win?

If to heaven I can’t go
I first would want to know!
