Default Hope is a Four Letter Word

People walk though life thinking nothing.
Everyone always wants something.
What you have to offer, not what's inside.
Create more of a social divide.
It seems so silly to analyze.
Human motivation.
Love and caring get cast aside.
People only want what you can provide.

Desperately cling to a false hope.
It will lead to your destruction.
Desperation is a slippery slope.
A slow mental degradation.
Hope is meaningless, hope is absurd.
Hope, itself, is a four letter word.
Hope is worthless, you are too late.
Hope all you want it won't change you fate.

Why must people be so complicated?
It would leave anyone frustrated.
Why are they so fucking hard to please?
Why do I suffer from this social disease?
Its certainly something that torments me.
Something I will always lament.
So I'm left with an unfulfilled need.
Fake is the only thing most people can be.

Desperately cling to a false hope.
It will lead to your destruction.
Desperation is a slippery slope.
A slow mental degradation.
Hope is meaningless, hope is absurd.
Hope, itself, is a four letter word.
Hope is worthless, you are too late.
Hope all you want it won't change your fate.

Hope is a thing without feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all- Emily Dickinson

Hope is a gift from childhood and that gift is like a balloon we allow to carry us to our desires. That perilous journey in which we dare to ascend to heights that cynics will never achieve and if we do not let go our feet may touch ground in places we always dreamed of. But those that do not hope live in darkness perpetual and cannot even have the comfort of imagining.

I lift the lamp to you in hope to keep your light burning. Darkness has this trick of isolating the traveler but you are not alone, friend.
