Disappointed!

Disappointed!

Again I listen with a sigh

Knowing each word you utter is a lie!

A little of my soul, my inner light

Shines less bright.

Disheartened!

 

Disappointed!

The surprise,anticipated highs of my actions

Far exceed your muted reactions

A little of my soul, my inner light

Shines less bright

Discouraged!

 

Disappointed!

When those i aspire to be, show their true  colours

Realisation- they  are selfish not selfless - no thought for others!

A little of my soul, my inner light

Shines less bright

Despondent!

 

Disappointed!

When those I elected to speak what’s in my heart

Become self-indulgent- Allowing democracy to fall apart

A little of my soul, my inner light

Shines less bright

Dismayed!

 

Disappointed!

I’ve never ceased to be this - over and over again

Let down so often by my fellowmen

The last of my soul, my inner light

Snuffed out- as dark as night

Dispirited!

 

Disappointed!

As I’m let down - six feet down -( so I’m told)

Without my inner light my soul runs cold 

My final words planted at my head

DISAPPOINTED is what’s read! 

Disenchanted!

    What a well composed poem to sum up that feeling of hope and light being worn down until it is finally put out.

    Thank you - exactly the point I was hoping to communicate. Some days it just feels like that!
