A smidgen of hope is all one needs to survive

Just a little breath to breathe

No more is one lost then he finds his path


A life filled with sorrow and loss

Some can relate

Hope is found sometimes in the rubble of decay


One must lay awake dreaming of riches

No tear will stain the pillow for the fountain has dries up

The Gobi desert is your friend


A life if misery and lies

An existence where pain is a part of you

The harshness has made you soft


Some may say the deck is slippery

I say the ship is rocky

Don’t laugh, that’s my philosophy


Dream your dream of luxury and love

The reality says pain and poverty

Unless you are lucky
