Eyes half shut peering toward the sun,

I realize at once, I am alone.

Just my thoughts to be my friend,

Without hope there is no end.


Hope for rescue, hope for food,

Hope for shelter from solitude.

In my gut I feel the fight,

Don’t give up, hope gives me might.


One dusky evening along the shore

A craft appeared speeding full bore.

Thrashing my arms to change my life,

Carrying hope, I walked to their light.
