Will There Be a Happy Ending? (Day 147)

 
Will there be a happy ending
this time? Will we win
because good always does?
If we can’t hear you,
we can’t see you—
maybe you’re not real.
Can you help us? Will you 
hurt us? Tell us how you feel.
Our hats have always been 
the whitest, spurs have always 
been the brightest, but 
you’re their dark horse and
they fight us everywhere 
we turn. So tell us, 
will there be a happy ending,
or is the ending just beginning?
How can we make sure 
that the good guys win?
