free verse poem
It’s hard to remain an optimist in a world so bleak.
Living a life of desolation eternally hidden in disbelief
of our current dogmatic system. The charismatic youth
has extinguished to evolve into what our unforgiving world has become.
A nihilistic pessimist submerged in nothing but abysmal absurdity,
walking aimlessly through life. Praising nothing while sitting alone.
Shrouded in a veil of mystery that cannot be lifted.
It’s hard to love in a loveless world.
Empathetic towards those who have lost so much, yet constant
fleeting thoughts to be contained within the heart rather than the mind.
All of these conscious contemplations that burden the mind and heart
caused by chemical saturation, nevertheless still remaining an unrivaled
usurper of desire. The ground that’s walked upon shakes the Earth
with every step towards finding centered peace. A deconstructed intellect
that has left no stone unturned, who still loves then loses, however remains
optimistically vulnerable to the life that will continue on.
Thank you for remaining an optimist.
