Hope



Even as we continue to receive the worst
we cling to our habit
of hoping for the best.
We are ridiculous!
But how else should we be?
We are ridiculous.
Everything is ridiculous.
Pain and suffering are ridiculous.
Hope.
Hope is beautiful
as only what has not yet been destroyed
can be beautiful.
Cold, and ridiculous, brutal
and beautiful.
