Even If I Don’t Believe, I Must

Even in this world,
dominated
by darkness,
dirt,
and let downs,
I have to believe
a ray of light
will break through
the protective,
steel shell
I welded
in despair
around my dreams,
that hope
is alive and bleeding
somewhere
out there
on the border lands,
that half a chance
lies
half coherent
on asphalt
down
a dead end street,
fighting to breathe,
waiting for me
to pick it up
and put it on its feet,
so we
can lean
battle-worn
on one another,
and limp
through the door
of brighter days.
