Just when you think all hope is gone, it pops out at you like a fire cracker.
It hits you in the face like a kick ball in gym class.
It passes by you like a freight train on its way to a far, far away destination.
It sticks to you like gum on a brand new shoe.
Whether it takes you by surprise, or throws you off guard.
Or it scares you, and makes you want to be a child again in your mother's arms.
Whether it hurts you, and you learn from it, or whether you take advantage of it use it to it's fullest.
Whether it passes you by, or follows you home at night.
You'll always find love in unexpected corridors.

The author's comments:
To be honest, I've never been quite the poet. I'm hoping that this poem lifts the spirits of those who have engraved in their minds the ideal that "Love is pointless, no one will ever love me..." etc. I just want to brighten others people's day and keep them hanging on to hope.
