Unyielding Hope

April Poetry Month

Poem 13

I have not known caution in my life,

I see possibility

In the improbable.

I seek always to bend the impossible

To my own optimism.

If it snaps in its frailty before my unyielding hope

I am astonished as a child betrayed by a familiar toy.

I answer with denial, with disbelief,

Convinced not of myself, but of the need of others.

Driven am I to be a fulfillment

To answer the question

in my own life.

Ann--for me, this is one of your best ever. I loved this

I see possibility

In the improbable.

I seek always to bend the impossible

To my own optimism.

Really gorgeous writing!
