Hope

I can remember when
the grass was always green,
people were never unkind,
school was fun and games,
and life was carefree.

Now all I know is
dying grass,
mean-spirited people,
incredibly hard school,
and a life full of worries.

But still,
I can remember
the happy times
which gives me hope
that they can come back again.

A/N: we were given another line. "I can remember when."
