I cannot let hope die


I cannot let hope die

By May Kwek

Do you know those times?
When you try and always fail
When discouragement sets in
And you fear you never will?

Well I think I am a prey
To those dreary emotions
Because doing certain things
Is not in my disposition

But the longing never ceases
The feeling never leaves
There are times where I even
Wished I could fly away with the breeze

There are times I want to give up
And not even bother to try
But I find that I simply will not
Because I cannot let hope die

I will not let hope go
Though I improve but little every day
I will not let hope go
Because it is not the end I say

There’s still more for me to live
There’s still more for me to achieve
So I cannot let hope die away
No, I want it to stay

But I know it is hard
Harder than I can say
But I cannot simply stop
Because my nature is in my way

No, no, I will carry on
Though I fail I must be strong
I will always continue to try
Because I cannot let hope die
