keeping hope alive
I gotta strive

To keep hope alive.

Because if it shall die

I might just go right with it.

It's the only thing keeping me going

Putting one foot in front of the other

Wondering what's to come next

Hoping for success

Hoping for someone to share it with.

Hoping for acceptance

Hoping for my dream to stay alive

And hoping stay alive long enough

To make it an reality.

It's what keeps me afloat

On the sea of my life.

Hoping to maintain

Hoping to change things

For the better

Because no one knows what tomorrow will bring.

Hoping she'll come back

Hoping to get a chance to relax

from hoping.

But it's just one thing

About this hope thing

I need to take action

Instead of relaying on hoping.
