Haplessly Hopeful… Thoughts of a bewildered mind

Very turbulent times…
What’s there to learn in this experience?
What’s the point not quitting if there’s no eventual victory?

Do those who run not live to fight another day?
What if quitting was the wise thing to do at the time?
Does the obstinacy of undeterred optimism yield any good in the face of inadvertent failure?

I ask my self: of what gain is but this wild goose chase?
O! To what end shall I run in vain hope of seeming, though imperceptible possibility?

I stretch to the limit… give all it takes… my very best indeed… howbeit no sign of any fruition in view…

Oh! The foolishness of resilience sways besides the wisdom of quitting…
As I eagerly clinch to the tiniest strand of hope amidst a mighty storm of impossibility…

But when it’s all said and done…
Let it be said that I was that man… that man that never gave up…
