My Knight was Hope


I am dancing in a frenzy,

Twisting and shaking away.

I  cannot stop myself.

Moving to her beats,

did my helpless feet.

Onlookers are clapping.

They are cheering.

Not sure if I danced faster,

Or my moves got better,

But they clapped harder.

Then I felt myself falling.

I couldn’t stop myself falling.

She continued beating. 

I fell onto the ground,

but my muscles kept moving.

To her beats, they twisted.

She did not run to my aid.

They did not either,

The onlookers.

They watched by the side.

While I lay dispirited.

Then he came to me.

My sunken heart lifted.

Someone had come to my aid.

He called himself Hope.

He tried hard to lift me,

But I was too heavy.

So he laid by my side.

Telling me stories of those before.

I felt lighter.

The weight ebbs away.

Then he tried again.

I was back on my feet,

Dancing to her beats.

For not once did Fate stop drumming.
