Hello, Hope!? Are You there!?
I am a young man from a place where
English is a foreign language.
I hope You understand my message,
As it may not be well written
And this form might not fit in.
But I intend it to stand out a little.
I am searching for You, Hope.
You are all that I have left.
Please throw me the helping rope
To pull me up and free me from heft
So I can be back on my feet
Up and running with a strong heartbeat.
I am asking for a boost – just a little.
My story in general is somewhat similar
To others. I am now in need of financial help.
I did grow up in a family – warm and beautiful –
But when I think back I was all by myself.
Starting from kindergarten age I was alone,
Most often the last one to be taken home.
I have only few photos from time back then.
The teenage years I still remember mostly
But nearly no photos to help keep them in memory.
This Friday im getting a year older than a quarter of century.
I have never before looked at my birthday
With such big pain and misery
Due to recent things I have done by my own stupidity.
Lost my wisdom – I am asking myself how and when?
I did good at school, had top grades.
Even started to have closer friends.
Yet by now all of that has faded away.
Over time I have lost all my friends –
No, they haven’t passed away
It is our friendship that has passed away.
Now I have no one to turn to.
I am begging for financial help.
I get low and raise my hand for help.
I am ashamed and afraid to look up.
I keep my eyes on the ground, hand still up.
I would rather not talk numbers as they are way over my head
I will never forget this – it is engraved deep in my head.
Hope! – I cannot do this without You!
Whoever reads this message, remember this:
You are my spring, my fountain of hope.
You can revive my long forgotten feeling of bliss.
Will I ever get to thank You enough – nope.
So I hope the feeling and knowing You have helped me out
Will bring You joy and warmth without any doubt.
Any donation will help me out a lot.
But if I find You being way too generous
I will share Your generosity here with others.
