Hold Fast Hope
Over Christmas, I watched Shawshank Redemption. Twice. Because it is amazing.
And this section of the film always rings so true for me. The world is, as a rule, a bit crap. Not to draw any comparisons with prison, because I haven't actually ever been in a penitentiary. But to draw a really obvious tenuous link, one thing the world cannot take from us is hope.
To quote Thrice again, probably for the billionth time:
My heart is filled with songs of forever
The city that endures when all is made new
I know I don't belong here, I'll never
Call this place my home, I'm just passing through.
