Optimist

I need to believe this will lead

To something better.

I have to hope that this will bring

A happy ending I couldn’t have foretold.

I want to trust that this will follow

A plan that ultimately surrounds us all.

But I honestly don’t know.

My mind races and retraces

Every step that has brought us here.

Sometimes I am giddy as I look ahead.

Sometimes I am filled with fear.

But time keeps racing and erasing

What I once thought I should know.

And so I type to help make sense

Of what I no longer control.

And I look toward a future

I will pretend I believe

Will lead to something ever better.
