Hope in the face of adversity, an inspiring piece by Mark at Colouring Outside The Lines.

Coloring Outside the Lines

Hope goes tumbling down the stairs.
The baseball bat in my hand.
Tomorrow, if it comes back. .
More of the same, it’ll be!
Vicious, ruinous rumors rise.
Raucous thoughts of change.
Misery drags bones out.
Flesh and muscle stay.
Flopping on the floor.
Wellness, willingness?
Are you kidding me?
Time ticks away changes.
Promised light filters shadows.
Dust doesn’t even float.
Hope leaves it too,
Behind, left to pick itself up
Again and again.
Hope sinks.
