For The Sunday Whirl poetry prompt: Wordle #191

loser, tangle, say, endeavor, spacecraft, lunatic,
planets, angels, tread, forever, spread, spinning


Self Portrait


Sometimes felt like a loser, a lunatic
forever spinning through life in her small
spacecraft of hope, even though she
knew what many said about not entering
where angels fear to tread.

A tangled endeavor at best, this attempt
to spread a web of cheer and kindness
on this fast dying planet of seeming uncaring.
Yet, she found herself continuing to plant seeds:
one good deed after another.

    Sometimes all you can do is keep trying even though it does seem a vain thing. No-one will ever convince me this place isn’t purgatory. All we can do is try to be kind to each other.

    Better to try to do something yourself than leave it to others.

    Continuing to plant seeds, even when all seems hopeless, is in itself an act of defiant hope.

    Yes, hope is in such short supply on this fast dying planet of apparent apathy….keep planting those seeds!

    I have to say, as one of the dying breed myself (optimists, hope mongers and the like) … I loved this…it seems like there’s always someone there trying to talk you out of being hopeful…why is that I wonder. I agree, keep planting those seeds. Eventually we’re going to need an army to go up against the apathetic ones.
