WHAT IS HOPELESSNESS?
Hopelessness literally means a feeling of no hope, or a lack of hope, sometimes caused by facing a dilemma that you feel cannot be solved. The emotion is experienced differently for everyone but is typically characterized by a negative viewpoint about the future–perhaps brought about by thoughts of losing control and confidence and the energy to reach the future you once imagined.
Just today I decided to make a way
Just today I decided to walk away
Just today I decided to make a start
to do away with my broken heart
It’s never too late to make that change
Just today I started to do things my way
to let go of this hopelessness
to become the very best
to strive to survive
to express what I feel inside
yes I thought just today to be me
and fly away
