The Optimistic Pessimist

I see the best in people,

Yet fail to do so in myself.

I hope everything works

Out for the best,

Except for me, I know

It won’t.

I walk down the street,

Marveling at the blue sky,

While hoping for rain.

I fall in love, while knowing

I will also fall out.

I live my life, aware of

My mortality.

This is life.

This is me.
