Sinking into a True Despair

Sinking into a True Despair It’s like trying to shoot a monstrous ghost that you can’t ever see, and, at the same time, this applies when one wants to kill a rumor, and where everything is just like water running off a duck’s back, and when you can’t see the source of it as it disappears over time. Yet, if this leak becomes a true object of issue and a real concern, then all the damage is irreparable and beyond any hope of saving. It’s at this stage that we choose to cut our losses and to move on. And, why not? Despair is always a part of the human experience. Yet, where there is “despair” there can also be “hope,” if each of us have the courage to summon it and to never take counsel of our own fears. Hope can spring eternal, if the human will is stout and courageous. Let us hope so and make it so! Gary Bateman and Liam McDaid Copyright © All Rights Reserved July 5, 2021 (Verse)
