Optimism

Some may need to run four miles

Others drink a shake

Some must don the latest styles

Or start their day with cake

Some wake up to piss and moan

About the day that lies ahead

I wake up and look around

And confirm that I’m not dead

Once I’ve made that distinction

That I did infact avoid extinction

I get to start it all again

I record some thoughts on phone- not pen

I tell myself this could be the day

My luck will change in some small way

That’s the thought that is the glue

It hugs my heart and pulls me through 

~

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”

Henry David Thoreau
