Y! Poetry: Hope to haven

by Nneka Jethro-Iruobe

Hope for a new day

Keeps me alive

Hope that tomorrow would bring more opportunities

Allows me sleep

Hope that life will offer me that chance I have been begging for

Caused me to dream last night


I have hope

But when life is ready

When life serves

Will my teeth be strong and my digestive system ready to process

Am I really ready for what I hope for


Wishing or Pursing

Hoping or Preparing

Talking or Tilling

Am I ready for what I have said I want


Hope keeps me alive

But would hope take me through

Hope makes me want to see tomorrow

But will tomorrow hand in what I desire


Pursuing, preparing, tilling

Tools I need

Actions I must take

To convert today’s hope to tomorrow’s haven.
