The Trying Trials

You will reach out your hand only to be rebuked.

But try.

You will be made out a monster when acting as saint.

But try.

You will be called destroyer when you aim to preserve.

But try.

Hope will wane as despair folds overhead, a gargantuan tempest's wave.

But try.

Those you love may one day turn and spurn you, forsaking affection.

But try.

Forget fear's power.

Tear asunder all slander.

Persevere to preserve.

Cling to the mast of hope amid thunderous ocean waves.

Love in the face of loathing, holding fast to grace and longing.
