Silver lining by Joseph Hope
Surprisingly the clouds will fold up
And the sun turn stern cold,
The breeze would cease,
— everything will begin to burn up
Like blue fever
Like a desert
And the heart will begin its perilous journey
Through the blue sea, through the atomic desert
Like Moses with his packs of unbelieving sheeps
Cursed to wander
Surprisingly the clouds unfold again
And there is warmth
And the eyes re-adjusts for a better view
The glimmering smiles blend into each other
And the glamour sinks deep into the skin
Deeper into the bones
Deepest into the soul
And the heart heals up, like a grafted tree
Surprisingly there appears in the clouds a silver lining
A hue wearing the face of hope

This poem makes me understand that no condition is permanent. As much as we want to believe, change is definitely inevitable. The hands of the clock would turn and things would become better again. It is only for a little while.
