Mask of Optimism

Tenacious humans

We keep pressing on

Despite the obstacles put in our path we move forward

certain that better days lie ahead

We play games to keep

our minds distracted

A smile hides the cracks beneath

We adapt

we overcome

we lift those around us up

so that they too can do the same

This fills me with hope

like passing a torch from one person to the next

using our light to combat the darkness.
