Hope Is Hard

(a spoken version is at the link below)

hope is hard
the other is easy
I can know the one
but I will feel the other

I can know hope
and talk it into myself
I can believe hope
and accept the words of another

but hope is hard
because I feel the other
and hope is hard
because I know what I feel

I can know hope
but what I feel
when I feel the other
is so strong
is so loud
and makes it so hard to know

yet what I know
must live with what I feel
hope is hard
