Optimism and chances

I looked at him and knew. 

He had felt what I had felt, dreamed what I had dreamed. I was lost and afraid. No one understood me.

I was alone. 


He had never known a world that treated him with the love he deserved.

Mistreated and hurt,

he turned his back on future possibilities becaus it was all deception.


It could not be seen,

Where could it be found?

If I take the step, maybe he would to.

Catch me and I'll catch you.

Falling head first 

"Take a leap of faith" she said to him

Together we can meet change, possibilities and optimism head on.
