Hope a poem by Sayanshuvra Chakraborty. My hopes were shattered/My anger became obsolete/My wishes went unanswered…
Hope by Sayanshuvra Chakraborty

Last year I hoped I could go have fun with my friends,
This year I hope no one in my family will die.

Last year I was angry  I missed my graduation,
This year I hope  I can go outside once again.

Last year I wished for school to end soon,
This year I wish to step inside my new school.

Last year I hoped  this would be over soon,
This year I hope ignorance, not hinder our freedom.

My hopes were shattered,
My anger became obsolete,
My wishes went unanswered,
This year, things may soon change,
A new day is upon us,
Our new hopes, new wishes, new ideas,
A new day is upon us,
May we soon are able to seize it.
