Lost on an island with nothing but Hope

You see the thing is I’m already lost,
Alone and afraid in a sea of faces.
Standing by myself on an island that’s only arms length.
But it’s not a tv or a book that’ll keep me sane.


My time here doesn’t matter, don’t care about the cost.
Being here is second nature like tying shoelaces,
But there’s one thing I need to provide me with strength;
It’s hope that keeps me lively in such a lonely domain.


With hope I have a better tomorrow.
It’s with hope you plant a seed.
Hope removes all my sorrow,
Hope is ALL I need.
