#161: Poem: We All


Corvallis, April 28th, 2021 – P#773

we all
have hopes
we all
have dreams
we all
seek solace of the soul

for as we walk
in this valley of darkness
far too often
we’re all alone
we’re all, deep down,
a single being,
reaching out
for all our lives:
for all our sakes:
and though we try
the only certainty in birth
is death;
and all that happens in between
can only function
only work
can only guide us
only live
if there is hope

how do we
create hope
out of that?
