I have got a sneaky feeling, that you'll find hope actually is all around!

I have got a sneaky feeling, that you'll find hope actually is all around!

The harmful ashes of atom bombs and gun fires are polluting the air, The vehicles emitting CO2 are blocking my lungs, But then when I receive assurance from the sweet fragrance of papa's perfume after he quit smoking cigarettes, it smells a lot like hope.

The Newspaper articles about rape and child sexual abuse disables my ability to sense anything, Getting attacked by acid and ragged by my seniors makes me shiver at a mere touch, But then when my sister hugs me and helps me rise back up it feels a lot like hope.

I hear them say you are fat and dark, I hear them say you are not enough or you can't do what you want to because you are a girl, But then when I hear T. Swift sing, 'I am the only one of me and that's the fun of me', it sounds a lot like hope.

Some days when it gets gloomy and sad, It tastes like Tabasco sauce mixed with mustard. Some days when I feel like giving up, it tastes like chewing a hard loaf of expired bread. But then when I realise there are people fighting their own battles one day at at time, hope tastes a lot like the delicious chocolate cake, my mum bakes for me.

Hatred towards other religion or homosexuality, blurs my vision to see the right side! Discrimination and violation of basic human rights makes me blind towards humanity, But then when I see two lovers uniting under the stars and a person emerging victorious by breaking all the taboos, hope looks a lot like the victorious smile I see on his handsome face when he successfully calms my storm.

If you think about it, I have got a sneaky feeling, that you'll find hope actually is all around!
