I've always thought of myself as a pessimist

It wasn't until I lost everything

That I realized what an optimist I am


I used to ALWAYS refer to myself as a pessimist, but once I lost everything that mattered to me, I was so let down and bummed, even depressed. It was in that moment that I realized I was never a pessimist, but an optimist. Pessimists aren't let down. I however, definitely was let down, and being let down means that you had expectations.

Maybe I don't have a mind,
but at least I'm not crazy.

I fallen so many times,
so I'm so experienced.

I've been cheated and left behind;
I know my friends and enemies.

I hear the echos of memories;
they see how far I've come.
So I know I've come so far.

Don't have a lot of friends,
so music's number 1.

Would kill for solitude,
but then where is the fun.

Maybe it's complicated,
but that makes an adventure.

Sometimes the darkest times,
are ones we gladly venture.

Optimist living for a life we understand. We were never idiots; we have the upper-hand. Notice their all falling down the depths of agony, but we optimist live strong, proud, and free.

once in a while
you have to say to yourself

"I am beautiful"

because no matter what other people think
always love, believe, and take care of yourself.

Live life to the fullest and
never back down.

You'll see me here again
At the end of the dock,
In the morning mist;

Waiting for soothing rain
As waves crash the rocks,
Yet I remain the Optimist;

For when I breathe a sigh of sorrow,
I trust my sun will shine tomorrow.

What is happiness without a little sorrow?
#sad   #happy   #rain   #optimistic   #water   #sea   #mist  

When a cruise ship spring a leak,
the optimist says, "Hand me a bucket
to help bale the water";
the pessimist bitches,
'Shit, I should have taken a plane!';
the realist did take a plane, insisting,
'Who the fuck but optimists, pessimists
and old farts go on a cruise?"

Cruise ship

What did the Pessimist say to the Optimist,
On one fine day?
'The sun is too bright and so is the day,
And why does the sky bleed blue,
I would like it if it were some other hue.
And the birds chirp louder than the bulldozers,
I'm afraid, it isn't helping my hangover.
The roads look choppier in the sun
And the weather seems like a dam, that is soon to burst.'

What did the Optimist reply to the Pessimist,
On one fine day?
'I'm sure, it will all be okay.'

I start to think of optimistic messages
Darkened Supernova

The moment I open a conversation
I start to think of optimistic messages
I am dark
But I can always liven up myself
Looking at the bright sides
I could say to anyone
"On the bright side... "
Oh how I could be like that in real life
But right now
It will just be
Optimized text messaging

" Hey friend!  ^^ Sorry for being a terrible person earlier... But hey! We are still friends right? I am happy right now and you should be too!!! Enjoy the good things happening cuz ya know we can't live forever! Be happy and positive and stay that way! Trust me it will make things fun for you! ^^"

For a moment I thought I was lying
But then again
It made me feel trustworthy
Hopefully these text messages will come to life and I won't have to use a phone to be optimistic

I am so happy right now lol
Being optimistic helps!
Blackness, Winter silk, Endless horizon
Try to be like this a lot
Optimistic offering
Leigh Garland

Mixed messages
Confused conscience
Swerving signal

Thorough thinking
Optimistic offering
Hesitant Hell

Alliteration or something poetic like that

Like pissing in drinking water
Your lips were soiled when we kissed
I've got no more expectations
But at least I'll die an optimist

A flame burns...

the optimist,
sees the light it makes,
and the heat it creates.

the Pessimist,
sees the oxygen it consumes,
and the wax turn to fumes.

which are you?
