There are two sides to me.
so dedicated to hope and wanting to believe in its existence.
The opportunity for joy at every corner
despite the struggles.
In the goodness of humanity.
The side that must be so strong
in spite of
the other side.
A dark pessimism,
the cloud of depression
that tells me it won’t work,
you won’t find joy.
You will constantly struggle and be weighted down by me.
I am the first side.
The second side haunts me like a shadow.
It won’t win, but it makes things a hell of a lot harder.
