Never Give Up

Poem By Rudy Hossam

Sometimes life is against you
You see it turning......
From dark to darker
Wishing it's just a nightmare
And soon you'll wake up......
Wishing it's just the night
And soon there will be light......

But you realize you were wrong
It's all very true
It's neither a nightmare nor the night
It's just things are no longer right......

In a corner you sit......
Crying blood instead of tears
Waiting sadly alone
In that little seat of yours
Thinking that that would change the world......

Unfortunately that's not true
The world just won't change for you
The world isn't yours....And isn't free for you

If you want it......Go for it
Stand up and think quick
Try to change it.....to suit you
Try to fix it.......and make it yours

If you fail......Try once more
Never give up......Never lose hope
And remember it's your goal......
Things don't change from the first shot
And light was invented
After a thousand try or more

Comments about Never Give Up

The darkness over here is really colorful and has magnificent imagination.. Keep up the good work.. Rated +10
Commendable effort, Rudy. Your employment of tight, crisp stanzaec structure provides an eye-pleasing, mellifluous read...Be cautious of your graphical termonology in establishing metaphoric imagery IE: (blood/tears) ...as[ I.M.O.], that particular line in your poem, does not mesh well with the non-surreal tone of this poem....which, overall, i like.Of course, you are the author, and I.M.O., is just that, and nothing more...Nice Work...Keep that pen pumping!

The Difference

In the middle of the night
My cell phone rang
My friend annoyingly woke me up
To tell me watch the news

A Friend

Why do I need a friend?
She does me no good.
When I’m sad,
She tries to make me glad,

In Your Eyes

In your eyes I saw everything new
And in your eyes I saw everything which grew
And in somehow I knew
I was meant to be with you

Love From First Sight

I never believed in love from first sight
It’s said to be but it’s never right
People talked about it all night
As if it’s clearer than pure light.

I Just Know One Thing

I don’t know when this life started
I don’t know when it’ll end
I don’t know how things began
I don’t know how things were
