Hoping For The Best


thank friends relatives
associates for their best wishes
thank them for their hopes

dreams for the best

of course
even at the best
of times

we do not make
the best decisions
we make decisions

blind or half blind
various degrees
of data informed

the actual best course
is sometimes obvious
in fallout retrospect

better courses
are past more apparent
sadly mistakes

are usually obvious
some tragically
are glaringly

obvious

but even attempted
rational decisions
are best thought out

in depth thought upon
prayed earnestly upon
then made in faith

hoping for the best
those made in emotion
with hurt or anger are often

recipes for disaster

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
