The Eternal Optimist


If you know my blog relatively well, then you will know this post name is very out of character for me. And sure enough, I’m back with another poem from my extremely poetic mother! Give it up, everyone!

Now quiet down, people, quiet down, and get comfortable. No smooching with the person next to you. She will now begin…

Eternal Optimist

Sure, I get sad

I ebb and flow,

I’m sometimes up, I’m sometimes low

The states of mind are temporary

You have to see,

So the happier place I choose to be

I have good reasons for my pain,

I learn from life so it’s not in vain

Life goes on

We are here to learn,

I do not choose to sink or burn

If you look deeper there are lessons everywhere,

I won’t be bitter

I will always care

Hate is negative

Destructive and lame,

It will not ever take away your pain

So keep your love

Keep your light,

Dream of fairy castles in the night

Fight to live another day,

More doors will open

For opportunities to come your way

Please don’t drag me to your place

Your eternal gloom I cannot face

Life is not what you make it

That is a lie,

But don’t let shit drag you from your castle in the sky

It’s okay to visit

But don’t get stuck

Just turn around

Go back to the moon

Don’t stay on the ground

~ Bluebell Rizzi’s Extremely Poetic Mother
