I, too, am a Pessimist/Optimist

I, too, am a pessimist.
A negativist.
A doubter.
I, too, am an optimist
A positivist.
A believer.

I can see both aspects the good and bad.
The mean and sad.
The content and glad.
I have two sides one gloom and glum.
The other side happy and fun.

I tend to dislike my darker side.
Although it speaks more sense
For the other side is too presumptuous.

I am scared of my half brother.
He can be rage.
He can be malice.
The other brother can love.
and feel,
and cherish.

Although I have two faces
They in a way collaborate
Helping each other compensate.
And by no means be too much or too least.
