Hope Is For Cowards

When you’re wishing for something that will likely not happen

But try anyway …

You hope.

And when it ultimately  fails, you can say

I had hoped …

And then consolation from somewhere

deep, nearby, far away.

When you’ve wanted, dreamed, dared

But don’t actually say it will happen …

You hope.

Hope is for cowards.

Just a backward way of setting yourself up

For failure.
