Hopes and Dreams

Why hope when there is no more hope?
Why dream when there is no point in dreaming?
Hope can easily be dashed to pieces,
Dreams can make things seem what they are not.

In a sense, hope is devastating;
In a way, dreams are fatal.
Together they set scene for most stories,
And still, life continues to advance.

People dream of fulfilled hopes,
People hope for dreams come true.
Hope causes people to press forward,
Dreams encourage people to move on.

In a sense, hope is the foundation of existence;
In a way, dreams are the building blocks of life.
How can two similar yet different ideals stand,
Changing and shaping the world we live in?

It is up to you to decide.
Is it better or worse to live in a world of hopes and dreams?
And whichever way you cast your lot,
Either way, they still remain.
