I hoped, I wished –
Many times, I cried,
And then once, I rejoiced.

An atheist was grateful,
I believed, I prayed,
Uttered a silent thanks.

He tested me, I failed…
Redeem yourself! He said
But again and again, I failed

Sure as the blowing air,
Hope had been in me.
Wonders, I had hoped of!

But now,
Hope is but a wisp of cloud,
I strive to touch it, catch it,
I meet the nothingness, the void.
