The Human Spirit

I see examples of what not to become

In people almost every day

Life in my community

There is so much to survey

But one must remember

In the same accord

People can be beautiful

There is much not to be ignored

Cynicism cannot be sustainable

As broken hearts can be mended

For every cynic found

Another optimist is apprehended

The human condition

remains perplexed

Those who may deceive themselves

Those who are vexed

The human spirit

On a path of discovery

Will find an answer

That may lead to recovery
