Beschreibung

Optimism is a funny thing. For many, they swear by it, but for many others as well, it is proved to be wrong, through circumstances, which usually are outside of that person's control entirely. I'm not saying it's bad, no not at all, just not accurate at many times. I will sum it up with this: if you've ever felt like your life has plunged into the darkness that is unsuccess, failure in any aspect of your life, regretting things you've done years before or you've failed to do, or suffered the loss of love, or have felt the sting of loneliness or rejection, these are the poems for you.

Klappentext

Many times in my life, I have been optimistic, only to have that belief proved to be incorrect, not by choice, but by the result of circumstances outside of my control. Things don't, and aren't going to always work out to be one hundred percent good for you, and many times work out to be much worse. Not because you want it that way, but simply because it's impossible to work out differently. I am not trying to change anyone's mind on this topic, I am just speaking from my own experience with life. Many times, I, and I know of many others which I can identify with, have thought that things were going to work out, but in fact instead, everything that could have gone wrong did. If you are in the middle of a vast desert and haven't drank any water in seven days, with no strength left to even crawl anymore to get water, and no one is around and you haven't seen anyone in that seven days, ask yourself this. Is thinking optimisticly going to get you water? No, it will mearly torment you, because it gets your hopes up which can never be fulfilled.

Anyway, when you see your life crumbling around you(which hopefully won't happen, but...), you may be able to relate to the following poems as it happens, or after. Anyone who has suffered pain, from something done to them that made them feel hopeless and in despair, these poems are for you. After all the resources, hope, and goodness is gone, now you know how I felt when I reached for love and light, and they were not there. When asset turned to debt, one by one. When each passing day it got worse and worse, the pressure tightening tighter and tighter, until eventually, the anguish that I felt was just a hair shy of completely and utterly unbearable despair.

Now I am not telling you not to try to be positive, no, not at all. But in a situation bad enough, can you be positive? I hope you can, and I hope you get out of every bad situation you are currently in, and ever will be in. But the real question is(not to my liking at all, but...), at a certain point, when it gets bad enough, for long enough, can you be positive? And more importantly, will it do you any good?

These are hard questions for anyone. You may be standing in a bookstore, and be wondering if you should buy this book. Are the poems sad? They are, but aren't you? And if you're not, I'm glad. But if you have even a trace of sadness in you, you will enjoy this book of poetry.

I will sum it up with this: if you've ever felt like your life has plunged into the darkness that is unsuccess, failure in any aspect of your life, regretting things you've done years before or you've failed to do, or suffered the loss of love, or have felt the sting of loneliness or rejection, these are the poems for you.
