Optimism is born in the heart
seeds of life planted deep in the soul
body and mind are united
Wow! Lyra, you sure know how to get my attention. Of course you know that I am a super optimist. So optomistic that I cannot even contemplate failure or looking at the dark side of anything. I just think that one needs clarity of thought and patience, and the anything, I mean anything at all is possible. Of course we must be somewhat oblivious to time and space. As all things are part of God's plan. But we are promised that we will receive anything that we ask, seek or knock for. And I believe that this means spiritually. But the physical will always follow the spiritual when it is pure. Am I rambling? I do that a lot.
Yes! There is nothing true but optimism! Pessimism is a lie. Period. At least that's my belief.
Wonderful, wonderful poem, Lyra. You are a fantastic poet and I love you.
A poetic reply?
Why be pessimistic and guarantee a fail
When there is always hope your ship will float and sail
It makes good sense to always bet on coming light
As closing doors will always guarantee a dark night.
Always be optimistic!
