What lurks within

Help with the struggles, man's faced with, in life on earth
As man learns life knowledge, instead of grasping worth

A passion to hold all that's seen, since his moment of birth
Is innate desire or thoughts, meant for direction not for girth

I find it ironic when man is compared to fish seen in a tank
To show greed's value, it's the larger fish that have the swank

Where man sees their struggle, in the fight for food and life
He fails to see expectation, the hope of surviving all the strife 

Hope for a world at peace, not planning for war to unfold
Our future worth can't be seen in a tank, for it is uncontrolled

The expectancy in living, isn't calculated in the coins of man
You find it, seeing the children playing, riding in your minivan

Expectations may change, in your life's journey, here on earth
lost at times within depression, as sad feelings seek to unearth

Is an expectation of this verse to change minds or to convert
I only task all readers to think, expand this thought and reassert

Conversations, will help all reason, with trauma that's found in life
Giving men hope and an expectation, to survive this world of strife
