 What is life with out hope?
 What will we do without it?
 Hope is what keeps us going
 with the courage to never quit

 We reach out and hold on to
 Any hope that we can find
 To bring temporary comfort
 To our over crowded mind

 It’s natural for us to lose hope
 And walk around with a despair face
 But then logic is if we never found hope
 How can we lose it in the first place?

 But still we keep holding on
 Looking ahead for the greener pasture
 And the moral strength of our past
 We will pave the road to our future 

 Hope comes in all forms and reasons
 Many hope for different things
 Some hope to see or walk again
 And some to fly with broken wings

 Some hope for wealth and power
 Some just hope it rain from above
 Some hope for health and food
 And I just hope to be with the girl I love

 When we see someone with despair
 It’s like looking in a mirror
 Its either we been there before
 Or it’s waiting for us round the corner

 Some are born with golden spoons
 There forks never got stuck in the roads
 And the never had to hope 
 Because they carry no heavy loads

 Not all carries kindness in their hearts
 And that is their purgative
 But without kindness and compassion
 Then you have nothing to offer or to give

 And although not all will admit
 But every one hopes for the best
 And some succeed without even hoping
 And some just face a lifetime of test

 Parents wish the best for their children
 And pray to keep them safe from harm
 But sometimes things just happens
 And the sea can no longer be calm

 And it’s only who in the kitchen
 Can really feel the heat
 And hope gives us courage to fight
 Until our victory is complete

 And sometime we will reach our limits 
 Pushing, pretending, getting frustrated
 Tired of falling down and getting up
 But still all we can do is hope and wait

 And no matter how bad our situation
 There is always some one worst than us
 Just look around and you will them
 On the streets, stores and city bus

 And if they reach out a hand to us
 Then we must pull them of the slope
 And For that moment to them 
 We become a shining light of hope
