There’s no one offering hope

There’s no one offering hope
Without hope love goes stale
Young men see no future
A young girl’s hope starts to fail

With no one offering hope
Darkness becomes complete
Every soul afraid
Fear in every heart

Reminders there are many
Of happiness and love
Like words on scraps of paper
To stop the flow of blood

But real hope is a rarity
And soon comes under siege
And it takes a lot of strength
To swim in stormy seas
