The thing that makes me flawless is my undying sense of hope,
my ability to find the silver lining in every starless sky.
One of the most important things is hope.
Having hope that better days are soon to come
and believing that even if the world gets turned upside down
and inside out, the sun will still rise tomorrow
and the ocean won't swallow you whole.
Without hope, people would have never been able to
make it through the nineteen-thirties.
Depression would have hollowed out a casket inside their bones
but instead they were able to dance and sing
and look forward to better days.
If it weren’t for hope, I would have been long gone by now.
I thank God everyday for blessing me and most of America with a sense of hope.
God only knows where we would all be without it
