\"I\'m not pessimistic. I\'m realistic.\"

The wind sweeping away the gray ashes of the pyre,
The fire burning what can produce no more,
The rain obliterating that which scores the Earth;
I see the acrid smoke, I let it burn my eyes;
I feel the heat, let it peel back the scars on my skin;
I hear the steady tears, I let them wash my footsteps into mud;
Let it be,
For it is easier to run than it is to cry.

The author's comments:
This poem may not seem like much, but I hope it accurately predicts what many people call despair. Others might call it anguish. Helplessness. Numbness. There are a variety of ways to express a single feeling, yet only one way to express multiple ones. Thank you.
