Figures (Poem For The Pessimist) - Poem by B.A. Phillips

Just when you thought it was possible
You were impossible
Those times you craved
You will always crave
Those wishes you have made
You will always make
You were so sure
But your let-down couldn't have been more unsure
Everytime you have tried
You have failed
You expected it all
But didn't want to expect it
After all, it only figured
Figured you could never be in your wrong mind
But you were right
The glass it always half empty
That is...if there is anything in the glass at all
