False Hope

False Hope

Photo by Mozhdeh Ahmadi

Mourning of the night
Shouting of the heart
Chanting of the hands
Hitting by the sand
Filled by the ash
Burned by the voice
Looking for the sound
Willing for a hope
Wishing for a man
Failed catching the hands
Shattered by the thoughts
Hearing of the shout
Washed by the sorrow
Faded by the look
Hoping for a hope
Living for a life
Walking in a dead alley
Wishing for a life
Hoping for a light
Having no rights!
