I am optimistic and wanting this to stick.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
With a fighting against denials that 'may' creep inside,
Wishing to assist the undoing of it.
And just in case...
I lose conciousness of this on a daily basis,
As hypocrites arrive to have my insights teased...
While I release my optimism to have it chased away,
In a breeze to be set free...
By a delusion I embrace to replace my focus fixed.
I allow quick visits with pessimists,
To validate the keeping of my optimistic mood...
Unrelenting as it persists in a doing I refuse to undo.
I have chosen optimism as a choice to choose.
