Hope’s Hope

Hold not to the regret of yesterday

Rather in steadfast measure,

Cling to the promise of tomorrow.

For what futility of purpose does it serve,

To descend immobile, into the abyss of remorse

Yearning for what was lost or has not been,

More despair, in the company of bleakness.

Shake off the miserable melancholy and reverse

That energy into earnest utility, and towards

The unbridled optimism within the sphere of hope.

Benjoy’s Corner X-6

Failed Agenda

What is defeat, but another challenge,

Encountered along the way, which may

Inherently seek to derail and project lingering

Emotions of dejection and hopelessness.

Why give it the opportunity, to execute

Its untoward agenda and pervade the

Remaining course with that abject resignation

When assuredly, it can be limited in essence.

Nay, squarely determine to reverse the tide

By employing inward resilience and valor

In favor of transcending the circumstances, and

Certainly defeating that which seeks to defeat.

Don’t be discouraged!
