The Optimists

They meet and greet
then go their separate ways
like there is no void in their souls
only one thing keeps them going

The hope, that there will be another day
and another chance

They live and survive
fighting their own fights
like there is no pain nor suffering
only one thing fuels them to go on
The hope, that there will be a better tomorrow
and a brighter future

They live to catch a glimpse of a face
for a hint of a smile, that’s not meant for them
awaiting a dream that come and go
They live just to keep a fading memory alive
because they never give up on
the only thing that keeps them alive
