Something drastic,
Demanding attention, submission.
Unyielding, undenied,
Persisting, enduring.
Will it dissolve, succomb to its medium, will it accept dominant despair?
Will it disappear, leaving behind a hint of itself,
Reduced to a taste?
Can hope stand its ground?
Can hope deny destiny,
deny despair,
deny probable power?
Hope, you drastic and stubborn thing.
