.:Hope Makes Me Stay:..:Hope Makes Me Stay:.5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Such a fragile, feathered soul
That trembles with a touch.
And yet, though worn, has weathered all;
Has faced and endured much.
What keeps the soul so tethered now?
It has not blown away
Despite its tattered, feathered bow.
'Tis hope that makes it stay.
