I titled this Hope and Wonder, but I didn't get to the wonder part. I think I'll leave it in the title for now, you know, just to keep people wondering. :)
If you will something to happen
Is that enough?
If you want it so badly it is all you can think of
Is that good?
Is there a sweet spot
Which makes what you are hoping
Is it a balance between positive thinking
And negative realism?
Or does it come down to this:
You have hope,
You decide you won’t give up on your hope
And the hope, the dream
Is a catalyst which drives you to make it happen?
Is life ever that simple?
