Risking Hope

Previous ... Next

this year started
with so much hope
and anticipation

i’d sit to write
and wait

with faith

for the theme of the day,
a topic to explore

for as long as it took
open hearted

patient -
for the thoughts
and ideas to come.

it always worked

yet i’ve kicked the practice aside
buried the trust

with misaligned blame

for a year of scrambled,
tumbled beatings.

with a mind disoriented
and time askew,

might i invite her back,
lick trust’s wounds,
and bandage her scars,


and again
listen, wait,
risk hope

♡ Annie
