Adjusting to life's changes with hope… through poetry, haiku, and commentary

If Hope Was Man-made


Waiting and wanting
don’t work together
very well.

They put your mind
and body on a collision
course. With what?

I don’t know but I
don’t want to go there
even though it is hard

to stay here. Maybe
some form of hope can
disarm it, turn it off.

I watched a movie to
make it go away. It
didn’t go away.

But somehow I know
that it is better to wait
than to want.

Even when it isn’t clear
what I’m waiting for. The
idea of hope unseen forms.

Really, it has no shape or
form. Hope is that place
deep down inside where

waiting and wanting collide.
If hope was man-made it
would fail. Love never fails.
