~I Think that is the Better Option~

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

~I Think that is the Better Option~

How about we forget all that we hold dear?
How about we regret everything that has been given to us?
How about we hurt the ones we love?
How about we throw our lives away and destroy the hope we have found inside?

Let us not turn into something we are not.
Let us not abandon the ideals engraved in our hearts.
Let us not take throw away the  answers we know are not right.
Let us take hold of the truth and never look back.

Why do we not cut off the love that is supposed to save
And fall to the ground and crawl away?
Why do we not disregard lives that have saved us
And then ask ourselves why we deserve another day?

Let us not turn into something we are not.
Let us not abandon the ideals engraved in our hearts.
Let us not throw away the answers we know are not right.
Let us take hold of the truth and never look back.

Thoughts and attitudes can cloud the judgments of those left behind.
Thoughts and feelings can be fickle and hold no true meaning.
Do you not think that doubts have crossed the minds of all that believe?
Thoughts and attitudes betray the way that was laid before me.
Do you not think that doubts have crossed the hearts of all that believe?

How about we embrace all that we hold dear?
How about we cherish everything that has been given to us?
How about we love the ones that love us back?
How about we throw away the doubts and remember the hope we have inside?
I think that sounds like the better option.
