Why this poem caught my eye

Our world would be an extremely dark place without hope. Hope is something that is hard to hold onto, but I think it is important to find hope in rough times, and remind ourselves of all the wonderful aspects of our lives. I truly believe that hope for a better tomorrow is the idea that gets us through tough times in our lives.
