The futility of hope

Why do we hope? Against all odds, against reality, against nature even. When our well educated minds and our exercised brains tell us that all is lost. When time tells us that whatever is gone, is gone. When everything and everyone, and even ourselves are against us. Why do we hope? We keep on dreaming and hoping.

Dreaming of impossibilities and hoping for miracles. Dreaming of lives full of light and wonderful serenity, Sunday mornings in bed and nights full of music. Dreaming of dreams themselves. Hoping for miracles, waiting for miracles, working towards miracles. Living life, what more miracles could there be?

We live our lives dreaming. Dreaming is what drives us to continue, to achieve, in the end dreaming is what drives us to live life. Hoping is what gets us through difficult times. Hope for the best, hope for more or hope for less, in the end hope is what drives us to live life. Why do we hope? Why do we dream?

We hope and dream because we live.
