The Weight of Hope

the unknown weight of hope
hanging over shoulders
bearing down
pushing a body
from standing proud
to its knees

some invisible hand
holding promise
just out of reach
and we struggle
and we grow
slaves to it
struggling under its awesome strength

and when we are released
[Hope giving way to certainty.]
the force of our rise
is only ever noticed
in the sighing
of the heart
