Hope Is a False Friend
When it is a mask for denial.
When it is the same as apathy.
When it papers over conflicts.
When it coerces people to suffer in silence.
When it enables victimhood.
When it prevents realization. . . .

The Best Hope
Unmasks denial.
Inspires an end to apathy.
Faces up to conflict.
Brings an end to silent suffering.
Changes the situations of victims.
Brings about realization.
