Optimism means
to see,
the distance you covered,
not the time it took,
for you to reach there.

Optimism means
to see,
the strength to get up,
in the legs
that limp and stagger.

Optimism means
to see,
the intention behind
every action,
And not the consequences.

Optimism means
to see,
an oasis,
if only just an illusion,
In the middle of the vast,
scorching desert around you.

Optimism means
to look for,
beauty in rubble,
order in chaos,
hope in desperation.
Optimism is good. It's great. I've learnt the hard way and I've come to appreciate it.

"In the long run, the pessimist may be proved right, but the optimist had a better time on the trip."
~Daniel L. Reardon
