[Mission 2022] InstaMotivation@9pm – Don’t Give Up By Jeff Bresee


We wait for what we long for.

We long for what we need.

Impatience and anxiety

Give root to errant deed,

Which grows to yield but heartache,

The fruit that poisons trust,

And so to shadow we recede

And hope descends to dust.

But somehow from the ashes

The will to try again

Doth mend the heart

And forge the path

In search of that one friend

Who never will betray us,

Who never will go astray.

But fear still lurks upon the thought

While waiting for that day.

We’ll simply stumble once again,

For we know not who to trust,

Thus thoughts becomes an enemy,

But conquer them we must.

For surely there is someone

Whether “Shining Knight” or “Bride.”

Then all shall have been worth it,

Our “Last Hope” justified.
