Realm of Hope

By Doreen Nzeyimana

When nightfall draws closer


We get the meaning of who we are


It’s when we embrace our own souls


And understand the true meaning of hope


It’s like a baby taking its first breath


Just like a dying person taking his last


We then realize that every beginning has an end.


And every heartbeat must have a meaning


When our energy is drawn


We believe that one day we have to get it back


Because nothing is ever lost


Our hearts holds many secrets


But the dangerous secret it holds


Is the resilience painted in the chambers of our hearts


To others our life is a total mystery


Because the hope we have is inseparable from our lives


From dusk to dawn our hope grows too fast like a dream
