Hope and beyond….

Optimism, hope and foolishness

Learning the ropes and making a mess

The fountain of youth is something we possess with pride

Untill life shows its patterns and take us for a ride

We shed spontaneity and the ability to trust

Cynicism touches us and hope does rust

We watch each step and stride we take

We learn to put behind us the tumultuous emotions and heartbreak

We mask our feelings, thoughts and  emotion

and tread so carefully donning the cloak of caution

Sometimes in this bid to safe from danger and strife

We drift away from the essence of life

We forget how to move on,forgive

We would rather get it all than give

We think twice before flashing a smile

Rue over going an extra mile

We end up becoming the skeptical cynics

Somewhere loosing life’s real rhythm and lyrics
