Keep Hope Alive

regardless of circumstance

in-spite of happenstance

ignoring pity proclamations

keep hope alive

rejecting dismal projections

dismissing futile machinations

embracing positivity

keep hope alive

sing to a new beat

laugh with a new purpose

walk in a brighter day

keep hope alive
