@JessicaLynnt has issued her weekly poetry challenge with the words "evil, good, night, day, fear and hope." Here is my effort: Hope As night falls on the village some feel hope for the dawn, fear no evil that might stride through darkness, knowing their day was good. Others, in cardboard shanties, fear the the night, can only hope for a warmer, safer dawn, darkness without threat, some food, perhaps, for the morning.
Welcome to this weekend’s Suddendeath poetry challenge, Sides! Anyways, rules are as follows, write a poem in any style using the five words that I give you....
