Despair – poem

People eschew despair,

the same they scorn failure,

and they only accept the latter

to look forward to future success.

But despair is essential to life’s journey,

which only ends badly for all of us,

no matter how much sensation

we cram in between both ends.


Desperate people are just those

with enough imagination to know

that no matter how firm a grasp we get

into this trance we call life, our journey

is always at an end and despair

is the only reasonable answer.
