What If Today I Let Hope Go

I let hope go.What if today I let hope go

What if today I feel like I have no soul

There is no point in the release of a scream

No point in clinging to a pointless dream

That amounts to pretty much a silly hobby

No room for tears or for any sobbing

What if today I feel like an empty shell

Perhaps it would be better to be in hell

Why? – One must feel alive to feel pain

Today there is plenty to lose, plenty to gain

But is it even worth it either way

What if today I just don’t care anyway

    There is a certain beauty of feeling free enough to just not care for one day. Nicely penned verse, Shannon.

    Life can be overwhelming at times, but giving up is not in my vocab. Nicely penned sentiments

      Letting go isn’t the same as quitting. Neither is not caring. But I know what you mean. Glad you like it.
