the importance of optimism

when you look outside the window
and all you see is a wasteland
an earth tinged with speckles of superfluous life

then you could be sitting in the wrong room

but i'm not that positive

i read this one several times. good poem.

i think that optimism and idealism are important and even in some cases essential, but i do not believe that cynicism towards everything is not also essential to some degree, although with all this degree i dont even know what the meaning of these terms mean.
