Hope.

Sometimes we fall, sometimes we land; The leap is inevitable.

Fool your mind, tell it you’ll fly. Isn’t that what hope is?

  1. Beautiful words. I tend to think that hope is often something we cling to rather tragically. It has its uses for sure but not if you don’t act to make changes. And if you cannot change something it is better to accept and let go than it is to hope for something different. But if you’re taking the leap as you say then yes you might as well tell yourself you can fly. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Woww, you are so talented bharath. I am glad I came across your blog. It brightens my day. Your writing is short and crisp. A great combo with my morning coffee. Enjoyed all your posts ( what all I read so far). Keep up the good work.

  3. In my opinion even though we will eventually land/fall (depends on how you look at it bc you will eventually reach the ground) you still are flying. Hope is all in perspective bc you might say you are falling down…another might say gravity is pulling them…or in this case you are flying until you land. It is all in perspective

      1. You should read the full poem, brother. And it’s one of favorites.

        Besides, it’s natural for birds to lose and replace their feathers. However, if one damaged the underlying skin, you can’t expect it to regrow.

          1. Just 3 stanzas, I’m sure you can manage that brother 😉

            “Hope” is the thing with feathers –
            That perches in the soul –
            And sings the tune without the words –
            And never stops – at all –

            And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
            And sore must be the storm –
            That could abash the little Bird
            That kept so many warm –

            I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
            And on the strangest Sea –
            Yet – never – in Extremity,
            It asked a crumb – of me.
