It took a comment to play it openly
in my mind...
where do i stand in this?
I have a question to be answered with
realism i guess...
maybe my optimism is fighting
asking for the opportunity
to be life-like.
i hid
the cynic came looking for 
my company
Crouched behind hope,
the cynic tapped...
i shudder
facing my unwanted friend...

    This is an outstanding piece, Karena! Love the "the cynic came looking for me"..very much an "unwanted friend"! Would that we could just give that one a shove that would send it flying off!:) God bless you and yours..wishing you the best! Love, Mikki
