nothing (until)

My people humble people who expect
Nothing.”
la la

~

what is there –
when the beginning
is nothing –
but hope

and what –
when you have
nothing –
is there for you
to cling to

hope
hope
hope

even
when the best prospect –
examined
from any angle –
is bleak

there remains . . .

must remain
hope

there is courage needed
to leave
a hopeless life

courage
even to recognize
that it is
what it is

how difficult
then
to formulate
even a slender vision
that sees yourself
not as victim
but
as conqueror

by rising
by challenging
by moving beyond
the limitations
of now
and their choking restrictions

onwards fly

go beyond

seek
and seek

seek
and endure

until
