What Am I?


Sometimes I am
the half-full glass
of possibilities, soaring on
hope’s rainbow
wearing optimism?s
shiny cloak
convinced
the slide down
will end in the
pot of gold

& sometimes, I am
the half-empty glass
drowning in sorrow
magnified by
depression?s lens
with despair?s jacket
heavy on shoulders
stooped in defeat

Never the full glass
of contentment
I so wish to be
