Hope

Nights are lonely.
Days are long.
Work is weary.
Sin is wrong.

Weak is easy.
Strong is hard.
Virtue isn't a
Reward.

Friends are fickle.
Lovers leave.
Good men struggle.
Evil thrive.

Wages wither.
Prices rise.
Truth's a liar.
Beauty dies.

Real chances
Only seem.
Getting real
Kills the dream.

Faith-based war
Is on a run.
Go and kill
By faith alone.

Works are nothing.
Nothing works.
Women waver.
Men are jerks.

Caring doesn't.
Doers don't.
Justice isn't.
Free will won't.

Is it hopeless?
Hope is not.
Hope's eternal.
Give hope a shot.
