Unrestricted Hope

Optimism

——————-

In an effort to avoid blindness,

Many have averted their eyes

downward…

Below the light…

And into places where

happiness does not dwell…

Where good moods sour…

and bad feelings grow like wildflowers…

Forgetting

of course…

That the sun is not there to blind us…

I t does not rise in the sky

out of habit…

Or diffidence…

It is a gift…

One to cherish

with arms wide open,

and eyes shining bright…

And, like hope…

The sun is always there…

For those willing

to see it…

  1. Beautiful poem so full of life so positive. The sun gives me energy in the mornings to get up and to fly to a day. And yes my eyes are wide open lately 🙂
