I Want to Believe – Written Wednesday 29th July 2020 (Aged 45)

I Want to Believe

i want to believe
i want to hope
but should i dare to?
it is clear
i was made in a different shed
am i,
just full of the delusions in my head
is my vanity
just over fed
has my humility
forgotten kind words once said
has my hunger
started to beg
have my wounds
finally, been bled
i want to believe
i want to have hope
but i do not want to look foolish
or a fool once more
my ego and pride are bruised
and feeling ever-so sore
