I ask my soul
why Push on today
why climb through clouds of loneliness
why come out to play
why toil for summits never reached
why love when death will win
why hope when failure blocks the road
when dreams are crushed again
Why stand tall
With vibrant voice
to live all I can be
Sometimes the gods look down
Sometimes they smile on me

Tio: I have been reading your poems and feeling your pain, your loneliness, your loss. Know that you are not alone. Virtual hugs to you, Tio.
I meant to add that in this poem I feel hope.
Thank you for reaching out and sharing kind thoughts in these strange and anxious times, times when it is so important that we comfort each other.
