Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense – The Futility of Hope

The once-proud acquisition will age with the dream.

The building that housed the hopes will decay…

And so the sun will set on every dream, every hope, every love, the day dying in a blaze of colour.

And yet, despite the knowledge that everything must pass, we're up at dawn again, hoping that today, indeed, will be different.

But…, despite the knowledge that everything must pass, we’re up at dawn again; hoping that today, indeed, will be different.
