An Ode for Hope


* * *

The more they deplore, attempt to destroy

The more I fall in love, fiercely adore

* * *

* * *

The more they poison, crush or trash

The more I delight, hold dear and revere

* * *

* * *

The more they smash, sever or detach

I will kiss it better, wholeheartedly embrace

* * *

* * *

Do as you please, choose evil be vile

Break me, you will never… shake me you will fail

* * *


* * *

My inexplicable verve -driving you insane, is not of my own

A droplet from above, bequest of the Divine, Most Loving Sublime
* * *
