Too thin , too fragile

The line between hope and despair
is too thin , too fragile ,
prone to being torn
at the slightest of forces ,
no advice ,
no suggestion ,
for you know
how to be gentle and firm ,
so the hand that holds on to hope
does not awaken despair .

A fragile, delicate line - oh yes. And how many times a day even, might one have to look away, find a tiny flower or a bright little bird to help pull us back.
