So much evil and disaster in this world
and yet we persist
We clutch hope to our chest
Was it not left in Pandora's box?
Is it not foolish, to hold onto it?
Is it not the source of our demise, our defeat?
But then I think:
Is holding hope not our chance? Our luck?
Was it not left there,
to give us the last glimpse of a better world?
Some say it is foolish.
I do not think so. We hold out, we fight. For a better tomorrow. For a better world.
