Where are the rays of hope?

by Shreya

Things are basically going to wind up

the way we don’t expect them to

or the way we fear things might be,

and this fact is so well known

to every cell in my body;

because I can now see the big picture easily.

I can see what a town looks like

from the top of a hill;

and all I see is dark smoke rising.

Truth has defeated optimism

and it’s out in the open.

And I’m completely frustrated.

It hurts to realise

that we entrust all our faith to falsehood;

only to see in time the big picture

crashing down to the ground.
