Hope Enumerated

The sadness that reigned
fell into a deep, chasmal
reckoning, writhing along
a corridor of
hope shrouded in weakness, and
wry sheep wearing wolves’ clothing

  2. No one is perfect. Perfection is a lie, but we can try. You’re too kind, but I just scribble things down. The trick is to do it every day, relentlessly until it becomes your toy. Have a great day, brother!
