POEM: Optimism — A Buy Product of Hope

There is a difference between optimism and hope. Optimism is about the inertia and trajectory of facts on the ground, while hope is a metaphysical reality that seeps into life of awe kinds amidst a dizzying array of means. Hope has the ability to shine, even most uniquely sow, when there is no reason for optimism. As Leonard Cohen put it: “There is a crack, a crack, in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

Optimism: A Buy Product of Hope

I can live without optimism
But we’ve hope
The very fabric of life
Oft peering
As well
Work clothes
Not sow much as finery
As the we’d of life
Breaking through sow much concrete
And first on the seen
Casual disdain
In efface of
Growing numb-ers
Un-till souled in masses
Crapping out
A buy product of hope
Snake ayes
In a garden of weedin’
Your back to work
Or sow they say
Only two begin agin
