A Wretched Thing


I wish hope would just stay at home
so I could too

And sometimes it does
and so I do too
and worse
And descend to that place of darkness
where nothing pierces

And then something is done
usually with intention other than intended
And light is seen
Even in that unpierceable place

And I get up
and start from this new place

Courage and strength
they are a wretched thing
