An Ounce of Pretention

A healing Heart will now depart to seek anew 
the chance of start to make it right come 
what may or might, but be well prepared if 
you are smart! For you never know what Fate 
bestows which can hit so hard with heavy 
blows, lift you up, throw you down, or bless 
you sweetly if it so chose...

    It's all true and from somewhere hope keeps pushing us to try again. Unless we seek, we never find, but oh the pain. Thanks for this delightful rhyme. Mark
