They thought he would drown, but he was saved.
They thought he would cry, but he eventually smiled.
They thought he would fall, but he gradually scaled.
They thought he would wither, but he blossomed.

They thought god saved him
They thought love helped him.
They thought money lifted him
They thought knowledge enriched him.

Only he knew what actually shaped him.
It was his ‘hope’ that ultimately made him
