Hope is a tyrant

Bidding us to do it’s will

Keeping us prisoner

Our chance of escape is scant.

Hope, is just a bitter pill.

    Hm, I would say “fear” rather than “hope” is the tyrant. Fear bids us to do its will and keeps us prisoner. Hope is what keeps us from giving up; it’s what reminds us not to fear.

    It does sometimes feel like that when we are repeatedly disappointed, Willow. Hope can also be an angel.
