Hope

Written by William Khalipwina Mpina

Squeezing a bone in a mouth free of teeth
New hope appears, disappears and re-appears
Staggering in the shadow of suspense
Kissing the heels of time singing of her youth
Downed by pride

Hope whirls—
Appears, disappears, and re-appears
In a cacophony of confusion
Loaded with memories unbelievable
Trapped in a cobweb of life’s mist
