It’s Hope That Connects

It’s the way we look at things,
Which separates us from many things

Thinking to find lasting pleasure,
Avoiding the pain and pressure

Life goes in circles endlessly,
Causing us to suffer greatly 

It’s our expectations that are limiting,
To lead a life befitting

Suffering the urge to compare,
Leads us to a life of despair

The desire to control others,
Our whole life bothers

A life spent trying to be richer than others,
When you realize that no one bothers

Be clear in your understanding,
Hope is what makes life worth living

By keeping our minds and hearts open,
We allow the divine gates to open

It’s when you look inward,
Is when you start moving forward

It’s expectations which separate you from self,
And it's hope that keeps you connected
