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
