A-Z Challenge, Challenges by Sarah, Haibun, Poetry by Sarah

H is for Hope

Although anxiety often brings me down, I live in hope. Hope for a day without anxiety. I always start small. A day. A week. A month. A year. Wouldn’t it be glorious? One after the other! I hope to achieve a level of living that does not exist with an underlying feeling of constant threat or terror. After all, if I don’t have hope, I have nothing else. And so I go on.

Wishing on a star
for fundamental calmness.
My hope upon hope.

Though I Roam Wild

though I may roam wild
through the deserts of despair
rain shall drive my calm

creating joyful music
strangled by the whitest hope
