Poetry

Even Hope

Some days the sun rises

but the clouds

don’t want the people

to know

and

the clouds bring rain

but the earth

doesn’t want the people

to know

that it needs it or if it doesn’t

and

the earth brings forth

thorns and thistles

so that man and woman

face hardship and toil

their whole life through

but the earth

doesn’t want the people

to know

and

man might see

the thorns and thistles,

earth, rain, clouds, and sun

as welcomed or not

but there is purpose

in each,

hope even,

yes,

even hope
