This is a day late for FDDA day 12, but it was also inspired by FOWC: Despondent. I consider myself a depressed optimist. 🙂
The morning sun’s rays through
The window as I write, relaxing —
Even if the day becomes
Mediocre, or taxing.
Even if I get despondent
Due to arguments or cancelled plans,
It gives me joy to contemplate
What substitutes are at my hands.
