hopeless case

one day, I swear, I will kill myself with hope.

I am an unfounded optimist, a scientist with only failed experiments.

Maybe then, I am a preacher, believing in what I cannot see, what I cannot prove,

but what I can feel in my teeth and bones and will tell you over and over.

 

I have felt so many sunsets, but inside me,

the sun still rises.

over and over, it beats its golden rhythm within me,

and I am defenseless.

One day, I know it, I will kill myself with hope.
