Today, I'm going to talk about a touchy subject for some people. And as well, it's a subject that a lot of people are going to have absolutely no clue as to what exactly it is I am talking about. Others still will put some meaning behind my words in place of any meaning I had for them. This is all fine well and good, just know that in your "logical assumptions" you are quite probably, if not most definately, wrong. Just a warning in advance.
Todays word ladies and gentlemen, is hope. Hope is a poison that eats you from the inside. It rots you away until you are nothing but a shell. But in doing so, it leaves behind this good feeling. This strange sense of euphoria that we can't help but enjoy. Hope is a disease that spreads from one person to the next, infecting everyone with this calm state of being. Hope over powers you like a cloud of good smelling perfume. Hope is the one that takes your hand while you walk along the beach and promptly distracts you while you step on a live jellyfish. But hope is there to tend to the wound it leaves behind too. Hope is wondering if your tootsiepop is going to have the nifty choclate center in it, or wondering if someone else beat you to it without disturbing the outer shell.
Yet while all these things sound like such a bad thing for hope, it really is a wonderful thing. It drives you. Keeps you patient and appreciating things more and more as time goes on. It allows you to reflect on everything and double check yourself so that you can be certain you know what you are doing, and it's there telling you it's all worth while. It's there to put a smile on your face when little else feels like it will. Hope is walking on clouds, even when you're not sure there is anyone down below making sure you don't slip and fall so they can catch you. Hope is that dream that you don't want to wake up from. But hope is also waking up from that dream and seeing that you have things even better than the dream was.
We tend to forget just how nice it is to have hope around, as we take situations for granted. But Lord knows, once you've lost it, you really know it. Anyway, just wanted to get those things out of my head and onto "paper" per se. So tell me, what is hope to you?
