Hope is another form of faith.

Though many do not admit it,

It is what keeps us going day by day.

Because of hope people wake up.

Because of hope people try.

Some people have lost hope.

Some people have gained hope.

Some people have always had hope.

I have always had hope.

I have hope in a better future,

Hope in a better day.

If I lose my hope or faith,

Then I lose myself that day,

So I hope to not lose myself

In any single way.
