Hope is a Human Frailty

Hope is a Human Frailty

Hope is a human frailty
which dies in the belly of pragmatism
Pragmatism says:
That which has not been done cannot be done

but hope knows better

Hope knows pragmatism to be a lumbering colossus
brittle with reality’s plaster cast

Hope knows not to be humble in future’s blinding gaze
Hope knows to demand more from reality

Because Hope is the glue
which binds possibility to fruition

Hope is the glue
which bind possibility to fruition

all of pragmatism’s fumblings have no answer for it. And we’re all the better for leaving the colossus in the dust.
