Paint My Sky With Hope

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not to me. Done for my Pandora's Little Box of Terrors challenge in the HPFC. O.o Read, review, and enjoy!

"To put it all down and start again

From the top to the bottom and then

I'll have faith or, I prefer

To think that things couldn't turn out worse"

Depeche Mode, "And Then…"

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

In the beginning,

I was as

r_o_u_g_h

as an unpolished diamond

& though you have numerous

GEMS

You can still make me feel favored

Once, I was raised up,

high on a pedestal

&& I had my time

But the going gets tough once more

It's time to build up

the future around me

I have my

family,

friends,

& you, too

So I'll take your hand

(whether in spirit or out)

Because I want you to be with me & lead my way

Well, this was short and sweet. :3 But I like Lilted, and they're so sweet together! XD Haha, I did this for "Hope" in my challenge and…I also wrote this so I could read it as a "prayer" in my religion class. Nice, huh? B)

Thanks for reading, and please review!

Thanks as always to Morghen for beta'ing!

2016 note: *LOL* I forgot that, yrs ago, I used to get away often with writing fanfic stuff and passing it off as school assignments… ;P *mew is a multitasker*
