Play the music not the instrument. -Author Unknown

I do not hope because I know I can fail.
I hope because I believe in happy endings.
I do not have faith because it might not be there.
I have faith because there could be.

I do not dream because I know it won’t come true
I dream because I need to.
I do not love because you don’t love me back
I love you because you do.

And I can love you, because I had hope
Hope you’d love me too.
I can love you because I had faith
I never gave up.

I can love because I dreamed of you
Every night and day during algebra class
So when they tell me everything I wish for is
Never going to happen,
Because it is just a dream,
I say, “Exactly,”

I want people to have faith and dream and have hope and love because no matter how hard it gets, I can promise you in the end, it will be worth it.
