Hope and Despair

despair
is found
when one believes
that things might become
worse
~
better
case scenario is that
despairs are dashed
leading to
hope

my attempt at a double elevenie for NaPoWriMo – an elevenie is a poem that starts with a noun (one word) in the first line, followed by 2, 3, 4 words in lines 2, 3, and 4, and concluding with a 5th line that sums up the first four.  A double elevenie, then repeats that process.  I chose to put my own spin on this form by reversing the order of the lines in the second half.
