I am hopeful and strong
I wonder how it all began
I hear one hand clapping
I see an imaginary friend
I am hopeful and strong

I pretend I don't care
I feel in love with the Bunny
I touch the thoughts of the young
I worry for the world of my children
I cry for nothing... least of all lost loves
I am hopeful and strong

I understand the love of a child
I say Small stuff is no sweat
I dream the stages and roads
I try for understanding of the false
I hope for happiness and love
I am hopeful and strong



This was... interesting. Definately worth the trip for me to take... thanks for reposting the challenge.


We see the light of those
Who find the world has passed them by
Too late to save a dream from growing cold...

Brad, I really like this one.  I think this might be one o' my favorite.  I guess as long as we keep this home and keep striving for understanding...we're all okay.
