Against Hope

Tired of desiring?
Do this every day:

First, just give in
to little, lesser hopes.
Look for a crack. Resign.

Then,
feel like you are enlightened.
You are awakened (So foolish to hope).

Convert other people. Create a fellowship. Your own little church.
Don’t build (To build you have to risk, dream)

Then,
don’t become an atheist. Just keep God
at a distance.
Create your own wonderful plan. Make life work on your own.

Do this
before they throw dirt on you.
It’s safe;
You’ll already be dead.
