Thaw Out Your Candle of Optimism
The world says to us,
(Or maybe just the media,
I don't know)
That our world is in jeapordy.
Climate Change and Recession
Jockey for positions in newspapers,
And Maclean's magazine
The public looks uppon politicians
And a sense of gloom falls over us all
Negativitiy fills our heads with worry
We become defensive
And look around in all the wrong places
For a saviour.
But all is not lost.
When you meet that person
Who has the ability to inspire you,
Entertain you and make you laugh,
Or even someone who knows how to think for themselves,
You can take comfort.
The world isn't a horrible place.
Certainly, it could be better,
And it's our responsibility to maintain positive change.
But hope, still exists.
In that dark corner on your peripheral vision
A glimmer of light beckons.
Shining brightly for us to warm our souls,
And thaw out our candles of optimism.
All you have to do is take off your blinders,
And turn around.
You'll see there's far more good than evil,
More light than darkness.
So why don't you?
Why don't you?
