Can we find the sacred way beyond
delusions and from this self-interest
that fills our days with nothing
more them the icing on a bitter cake?
Hope is an easy word for timid people
unwilling to see the truth and be brave
in the face of all there is to lose,
even if over the rise the loss is gain.
Shall we seek a Way that’s forward
not back and down and filled with
powdered dreams of what we would
like the world to be if it didn’t cost?
