Hope for Better Times

That’s what we’re in right now.
The malls deserted,
The streets are all bare,
And people are stuck in their homes.
People are dying,
the worst thing that could happen,
And hospitals are filling.
Oh, how horrible,
Oh how bad.
What could make this better?
What could fix this mess?
Hope for the future,
Hope from the past,
Hope that everything will turn out right in the end.
Hope is here,
Inside of you,
Inside of me,
Hope is an undying force.
Hope is never taken.
Hope is only given.
Hope withstands the test of time
Hope will get us through.
