The Pessimistic Optimist

Life

Is a dark stormy night
The people around you hate you,

Your black nails,

Your hair,

Your clothes and make-up.
They despise you for who you are.


There’s someone hiding from you all the time.

You get stabbed and hurt


You have enemies around every corner.

Hate

Tears

Darkness
Life

Life
Is a bright sunny day

The people around you love you,
Your looks,

Your charm,

Your grace.

They love you for who you are.
There’s someone there behind you all the way.


You get hugs and kisses

You have friends by your side.


Love

Laughter

Happiness

Life

This poem is really interesting! And it defines my personality perfectly. One half of me has mortal enemies while the other half has friends that are always by my side. Its weird how people can have what seems to be two personalities, but in reality their two halfs mesh perfectly. Keep writing!!!!!
