« Have we Failed {hope} or has {hope} Failed us? || Chasing the Failed Ghosts of the Past »

Maybe a little {hoffen} is what I need.

Maybe this is cheesy, but I just pulled the definition of hope from http://m-w-com.

Here it is:

Main Entry: 1hope

Pronunciation: \hōp\

Function: verb

Inflected Form(s): hoped; hop·ing

Etymology: Middle English, from Old English hopian; akin to Middle High German hoffen to hope

Date: before 12th century

intransitive verb

1 : to cherish a desire with anticipation <hopes for a promotion>
2 archaic : trust

transitive verb 1 : to desire with expectation of obtainment
2 : to expect with confidence : trust

synonyms see expect


I think I am going to go with “to desire with expectation of obtainment,”  BLAST! Now what do I expect to obtain? Understanding? Peace? Trust? Love?  Not likely… But that could be whats missing.. Expectation.
