The Possible

The Possible
by Christopher Walsh, 8/15/2020-11/2/2020

A year of fight,
Of fights against unfairness
Against arrogant anger
Against weaponized hate
Against too many's willingness to hobble the world.
In a year of so much happening
Of too much happening
Of too many dying early
Of very little that was easy,
A year of being wary of the very air
— an exhausted, COVID-tainted age —
We try through the trying
And live through loss
And try more
And more
To find or build the good
The potentially-good
The possibly-better...
All that we do in hopes
Of pulling the future we hope for
To us.
