Hope Is All We Have
oft times I'm accused of bitterness,
well, I maybe a tad world weary, that I'll admit to
and many a time disappointed
that's not bitter, just life experience.
life lets you down, people let you down,
the world grinds you down but.......
when you look at nature, at a flower or a butterfly,
at rolling green hills or white sanded deserts,
then faith is restored and down becomes up.
so I refute bitterness, clothing myself in hope
after all that's all that was left in Pandora's box.
In the end its the best we can hope for, is hope.
