Hope


You said I must have easy life:
I see the good in other people
I am always happy,
my eyes are full of hope.

Nope.

Only when you have lost all,
when you have nothing else but hope,
will hope be brought into being.
It is purified in failures
and made permanent by humility.

When you have nothing but hope,
when you realize your resources are gone,
hope will settle down in your eyes
and your eyes will see the beauty in others.

Their beauty,
even in the middle of their despair,
will make you happy.

And you know you have something to share:
yourself.
