We are punished

by futility

the task we perform

without progress or reward

the slightest hope

driving us onward

to failure once more

and still we try

each attempt a testimony

to faith

to determination

to a spirit that doesn’t quit

the story remains the same

our time occupied by the impossible

carrying Sisyphus

to the mountain top

to tumble and fall together – Caroline A. Slee
