I Will Hope

Crisis. Catastrophe. Chaos.
I am unsure what will happen. But I know
to trust.
I’m not certain what happened to me.
All I understand is that I was flying down the streets, air blowing in my hair. Then
My world stopped. All went black.
I tremble on the inside, I cannot tremble on the outside, but I know
To trust.
And I will… trust those who
Are crying
Are praying
Are helping
And are hoping for me.
This gives me courage to hope too.
I see the helicopter, like tangible hope rising in the east. Help is coming soon.
Just hold on. I will make it… I must, for all those around me I will hold on.
Forget the pain, just focus on the hope, and the trust, and the love.
For, tomorrow will come and be a better day.
The sun will rise again
Bringing new hope.

Wow, what a powerful poem!  I have to agree with you; this might be one of your best.  I like the structure of it.  It's disjointed here and there, like the conscious thoughts going through the person's mind.  It's very creative.

thanks... I tried free verse poetry for a change... I wrote this and "Ultimate Hope" at the same time, and they both are like my best, I think.

I like this part the best "And I those who
Are crying
Are praying
Are helping"
