Why Hope

Why Do we hope
..Why Do we care
.everyone says things
like Gandhi, MLK & the Pope

Bad things end up happening
after a Big Speech

..They die or get shot
.They don’t give us hope
.........just another reason
.........to be sad.

They put words in our head
to show how they can
change the world and life.

..Look What happen to 9/11
..What did Bush do to help?
Kids yelled and screamed.
............is that proof?

So why do we hope?
why do we care?
............I don’t.
