Tears of trepidation along

the tracks of expectation, 

because a presentiment said

it can't possibly work, this

attempt at a paradigm shift

out of moroseness into the dream

of hope's wiles, for the future

treasures your trials, and 

plans to set them free just when

you've told despondency to flee!

Thank you so much for the kind comment, John, I truly appreciate it! I wouldn't have even written the poem if it hadn't been for your suggestion to try the 'tears' challenge! 😎

I recognise this battle between hope and dispondency so well. It often ends in tears.
I love 'hope' s wiles'!
Phenomenal, Holden, as ever! 😎
