There’s so much bad in the world,
Good people make bad mistakes,
And each new piece of information just brings you down.
It almost seems like there’s nothing left.
Even hope seems to be gone,
Hope is tricky;
It shows up at the worst moment to lift you up,
And it escapes when you need it most.
People will tell you not to lose hope,
But it can be hard to feel like it was ever there at all.
Even if life feels hopeless,
Hope is never completely gone.
It exists inside everyone,
Whether we realize it or not.
Hope is a form of magic--
The magic of belief.
Never lose hope if you can help it--
And if you can’t,
Know that there’s always a friend
Who will give you some of theirs in a heartbeat.
