Hope (Be Still, Isaac Slade)

Rose: It's a fine line between denial and faith. It's much better on my side.
Charlie: Help me.
Rose: Baby, I'm not the one that can help you...
- Whatever the Case May Be

Once I finally started writing LOST songs again, Dad started sending me song suggestions, and this is one of those.  I was especially touched when I read the story behind this gentle song of encouragement; the songwriter's brother called him in the middle of the night, unable to sleep, and after their conversation, this song came to him organically as a response.

It made me think of Rose's efforts to motivate and comfort Charlie in Whatever the Case May Be, some of my favorite scenes in the series.  While she is there for him, she points him in the direction of a higher help he seems to have given up on...


Hope

I still have hope, and you can, too.
I still have hope Bernard is near.
I still have hope, and you can, too.
Things aren’t that bad, you know.

A monster came upon you.
Though Claire is gone, you’re not to blame.
I still have hope, and you can, too.
Just call upon God’s name.

You almost wish that you were dead.
You’ve never felt this low.
But don’t give in to gloom and dread.
Things aren’t that bad, you know.

This isn’t the finale.
Though the story may get darker still,
The Lord of Light will help you see.
He will, He will, He will.

Reach out for help, and faith will grow.
Before your life began,
The Lord was preparing to guide you.
He always has a plan.

I still have hope, and you can, too.
He always has a plan.

In a strong discussion essay, the thesis would go beyond a basic restatement of the assignment question. You might test the similarities and differences of the revolutionary aspects being discussed. More help with essays here www.au.essay-writing-place.com .
