Always Be Optimistic. - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Always be optimistic.

It's not the shell but the nut,
That nourishes.
But then again...
There will be those who spend,
Too much time complaining...
About the strain of the cracking.
Deciding there is nothing more than that.

And not examine,
How the foundation was created.
Or what it took,
From nothing to be made.
Since for them...
Strength relys on outside appearances.
Leading many to accept expectations of failure.
If not already precast in concrete.

Always be optimistic.
