hope

 

I just want to stop thinking about it,

It’s four in the morning, I’m feeling exhausted

The Tv’s still flickering and I find myself sinking in the chair like a fool

 

So here we are walking down the same road 

Where the summers are cruel and covered with snow

We never learn, it’s like we never heard what history teachers told us in school

 

But if they think that their hate and the despicable things that they say

Could divide us, well then they’re just mistaken

 

Can’t you see that all this hate never was and never will be our natural state

And you can keep building up walls for the rest of your life

But we’ll make them crumble every damn time

 

So open your heart and lower your voice, it’s only the hate that requires the noise

Love spreads itself, warm and nonviolently, love in its beauty is floating effortlessly

 

 

hope (speech)

 

To be completely honest here: I’m scared. Just like almost everybody else, I guess.

I’m scared that this surge of hateful noise will gain the upper hand.

 

I’m scared that this sad, unpredictable excuse of a man in the white house will snap one day, throwing us all into irreversible turmoil.

 

I’m scared that one day, when I leave this world, I leave it in a worse condition than it was in when I was born.

 

But because of hope, I won’t hang my head.

Because I know that the vast majority, at least in my country, does not stand behind these hate mongers. It’s the opposite, actually. 

 

It’s just difficult to deal with this situation. 

But I’m most confident that we will get through it. 

 

And when we do, we will prove once more, that even the most subtle kind of love is stronger than any kind of hate will ever be.

Oh I know that there is hope, we’ve just got to stay open for the unknown

I know there’s so much that can’t be done, but I know there’s hope, hope for everyone
