Home Life Window of Hope

Window of Hope

by Praveen Kumar

window of hope 300x214 - Window of Hopetrapped in a mire of reality,
sometimes dreams are all i have,
reality is nothing but
a well disguised mirage;

torn between the two,
i fight on and on and on,
every day with my own self,
to keep my sanity and live another day;

with my head full of pride,
hell-bent on proving a few people wrong,
unabated, i continue, living my life
in the dreams of yesterday;

in a world full of lies and deceit,
where people change alliances at a drop of a coin,
sometimes there is a window of hope,
that all is not lost after all;

as the year comes to a close,
i try not to go back to where i began,
a brand new year, a fresh new start,
to rewrite the script with my own plan;

I’m sorry if this is a really stupid question, but I was just wondering who wrote this, and if it would be okay if I used your poem for my english assignment? (you would definitely be credited/cited, but this poem is perfect for my theme of my assignment! :D)
