dwindling hope

dwindling hope
like the leaves on the trees
becoming harder and harder to find
with each new day
we watch powerless
as all our hope slowly fades away
knowing we should be doing something
rather than just standing here
watching the future fade to black
for it is our future after all
left in the hands of a man
who gets a kick out of making those
less powerful than him
feel ridiculously small
so ridiculous it is
to give all that power away
for just like the leaves
on these autumn-ravaged trees
so will we
come back to life again
with unwavering strength
and enough hope to inspire
many generations to come
