What Do You Make of This?  contest
I see the expectation of hope within the eye.

what lurks within  -  contest
Within the emptiness of an empty room, you can always find expectation.

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
