I feel there is hope
The problem is I have seen small changes
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.
