A Land Never Hoped

Why should some give up hope?

Is it the way they look down upon others?
Or is it because they let people tell them to-like one against a bully?

Perhaps it's their own lack of strength-like they're not enough, and so, give up?
Or maybe they're too strong and feel slightly stubborn
in the same way they are overconfident?

I think people shall never give up being good
But in the real world. will corruption overrule hope?
