Hopeful Pessimist

I Am

I am a hopeful pessimist 
I wonder if ill ever succeed 
I hear the loud expectations of society 
I see struggling parents 
I want to make them proud 
I am a hopeful pessimist

I pretend that life has a plan for me 
I feel the melancholy taking over 
I touch my fragile life 
I worry I will never be enough 
I cry tears of desperation 
I am a hopeful pessimist

I understand life is what you make it 
I say life is whatever you create it to be 
I dream one day i will have it all figured out 
I try my best and hope its enough 
I hope to one day change the fact that 
I am a hopeful pessimist
