I need to believe this will lead
To something better.
I have to hope that this will bring
A happy ending I couldn’t have foretold.
I want to trust that this will follow
A plan that ultimately surrounds us all.
But I honestly don’t know.
My mind races and retraces
Every step that has brought us here.
Sometimes I am giddy as I look ahead.
Sometimes I am filled with fear.
But time keeps racing and erasing
What I once thought I should know.
And so I type to help make sense
Of what I no longer control.
And I look toward a future
I will pretend I believe
Will lead to something ever better.
