a testament to human strength

They say “Hope is a thing with feathers”
But this time they’d be wrong
It is not a thing with Angel wings
To lift us off the ground

Hope is construct of nerve and steel
A testament of our strength
A measure of human tenacity
In the face of our greatest fears

They say “Hope is a thing with feathers”
But we have never been so soft
Because Hope is a thing of bone and mettle
That keeps us standing tall

—  Stay strong, stay hopeful (for @thaliaai because elections)
