Tether of life

Hope is not for the faint of heart
It tests one resolve,
Clinking and skimming the metal,
Cracking the armor of creed…

But it’s fear that’s the fuel of all life’s decisions,
The harsh mentor keeping the straight line of our choices…

What is feared, is cared for,
As it’s the potential loss of it that ignites the fires of combat,

What is cared for, is loved,
The eternal bond, an unbreakable tether
That binds the will to fight with the will to live…

And what is loved, is desired,
As without desire, without hope…
The colour of life fades,
Without wanting for a better tomorrow…
Today is lost…
