Poem; Hopeless.


The absence of hope.
This is the state I am in now.
Nothing on the horizon.
But a desert without life.
I often think.
Why don’t I do it?
Maybe by fear.
Maybe for my children, my family.
I wish I were religious.
Pray and find comfort in my religion
But I don’t, I am an atheist
I can’t be a hypocrite
And believe in God when it is convenient
And not believe in God when things are fine
I still believe in life
But life right now is hard to live.


Peace and serenity

  1. You’ve been feeling sad lately and I don’t really understand what I can say anymore. I want to console you and tell you that things will be okay but sometimes we are hopeless and not okay and that’s something that we need to pay attention to. I wish things would get better for you.

    1. Thank you very much for caring and you are making me feel better with your kind words. It is part of my life and illness that makes these nasty feeling. Eventually, they will go away, I hope. Thank you again for your kindness.
