Cynicism at its finest

ostrich-992753_1280

Cynicism is a trait
I oft regret
For when pessimism abounds
I’m usually upset

But sometimes my outlook
Just can’t be eased
So I bide my time
Feeling unappeased

Pastel perspectives

Pink, white, baby blue
These old perspectives
Now a different hue

Yellow, orange, fiery red
Newfound colors
Filling up my head

Dull pastels wash away
As brilliant fresh colors
Save the day

Head n heart is where they’ll remain
Full of vibrant thoughts
In a stunning terrain
