Random Poem:

Illusory Hope

Tender doubts cling to
Radiant gossamer threads;
Unpracticed in the art of
Salvaged faith, woven from
Tangibly fragile desires.
Bargaining on decayed
Remnants of
Overturned leaves of hope,
Knowledge quickly transcends
Each drop of reliance with
No regards to prior practice.
