I will grip hope
Until my bones are cracking
Until my nails are bleeding

Hope will not escape
When fleeing from me
I know where to look

And find it, I always do

The ‘maybes’
‘what ifs’ and ‘coulds’
All, fueling my hope

Even when my heart
Is breaking
Even when my mind
Is screaming

I can,
I will,
Find hope

…eventually
