How fragile built a world,
where each thought and chosen attitude,
Lies safe, secure and constant,
on foundations built upon some platitude.
How to deal with life,
to face its tumultuous ride.
To see every obstructive hurdle,
as if from some brighter side.
To see not what life holds,
but some glass measure of its fill.
To somehow look beyond the quality,
to let quantity somehow shape your will.
To heed not the dark storm clouds,
when horizons fade to black.
To see only silver linings,
somewhere beyond fates latest attack.
How glorious it must be,
to hold onto some distant hope.
To blind yourself just enough,
to enable strength enough to cope.
My world seems no more stronger,
though on platitudes I cant rely.
For as life has shaped and taught me,
forever so, to be the pessimist am I.
We all deal with ****... pessimist or optimist... good luck.
