Problem with Hope

the problem with hope is that you don’t know it’s false
until you’ve hoped too much

the problem with hope is that it paints such an amazing picture in your head
but it actually turns out to be a bunch of stick figures and scribbles

the problem with hope is that we often put it on pedestal
making it seem like the most important thing in the world

the problem with hope is, that it’s used as advice too often
that it’s turned into a cliché

the problem with hope is that we need it
