Hope Dies

by Charles M Harrison

When you have lost all desire,
and nothing is left.
When you have given your all,
your very best.
When you have tried to hard
and tried to long.
Until at last you are
to weary to go on.
When nothing is left
inside of you
But an emptiness
that spreads although.
When the fire inside
has died to an ember,
What it was you strove for
you don't want to remember.
When all that is left
is uncertainty and doubt,
How can you let
love flow out.
When all you sought
has been denied,
You know at last,
hope has died.

Hard to imagine getting to this point, but you have laid out very well how it could happen. Really well written - leaves me down, down, down...
