notes on hope and redemption: #1 – addictive hope

Poem #26 from a second series of meditations titled: the Pilgrim (2)

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


the fundamental nature of hope
pilgrim
is both narcotic
and human

the one attracts
fascinates
absorbs
pre-occupies

the other yearns
desires
returns repeatedly to sip
from the cup

no matter that sweet
transforms to bitter

it is the next cup
the next taste
the next hope
that may be
a little better
