Pessimism

You always tell me to be optimistic...
If pessimism is all that you've seen
Take yet another look
For what's on the cover
Is not what's in the book
Every time I've tried to hope
I've always been shot down
Tell me... Would you believe
If your leash was always being jerked around?
I had hope once before
A childish dream
Now every time I close my eyes
What I see makes me want to scream
Tell me what would happen
If my dreams became realistic
Maybe id survive
See... I can be optimistic.
