Having Faith | A Poem by Kathy Anderson

Hope is like a burning match
Easily lit and easily put out

Life is like our hopes
Nice to create but hard to keep

Willows cry as much as sleep
Sleeping to keep Winter’s dreams alive

Live in your dreams like Van Gogh,
Embrace the madness with understanding
