people say i’ma pessimist

people look at that
and see the sky
the reflection
the ingenuity of a human created bridge
they see nature
and the seasons

i just see the muck
well i see the rest
i guess i feel the muck
i am drawn to the shadows
i see the badness in people
and this picture is full of muck
the water isn’t clear,
the sky isn’t blue
the leaves have littered themselves
across the surface of the water
the bridge is old
probably needs repaired

people say i’ma pessimist
a ‘no-person’
a ‘this is why that won’t work’ person
but i know i see the world
as it is, with the bad outweighing the good
and the muck outweighing the beauty
