Fragile Optimism


I feel there is hope


but perhaps.

The problem is I have seen small changes

big talk

in front of people

only to have it disappear when people leave.

So I am cautious about optimism.

But optimism grows like a bulb flower

through the snow.


yet easily broken.

Strong enough to push against ice

Fragile enough to be destroyed by a footstep.

I feel sad about some things.

They seem hopeless.

Others have some hope.

If no one steps on them.
