    "Tyranny of Hope" poem by Pamela Borawski

    There is a tyranny of hope
    which attaches itself
    to an unspoiled life.

    Shattered.
    Perhaps next time?
    Hope is this thing with feathers
    that takes chunks from our flesh,
    then flaps away with but a
    mellowing laugh left in its wake.

    Battered.
    It won't happen again.
    Slammed against the cold wall of reality,
    it makes you open your eyes
    to the foolishness of thinking
    tomorrow will be a better day.

    Tattered.
    Where's the bright side?
    Torn and tormented yet still
    pressing onwards to a dream so real,
    but like a mirage which never
    quite seems to be attainable.
