Sheer Optimism: A poem by Mir Samsul Haque

Life is a stride, struggling to the core
Mountains of problems besmirch a soul
Who can deny this time tested aphorism?
Streaks of success in catching waves of optimism
In a bid to relish the savor of life
Stand rock firm against howling strife
Some are seemingly saddled with sorrows
With optimism, one sees the sunshine of tomorrow
In the face of fall, let’s face the life
However compelling calamities be rife!
This is the go of life if one can envisage
A note of optimism mitigates mirage and rage
In the cusp of events, a sane has to
Look deep into inner strength too
Sheer optimism can change the course of the tide
One can steer with gusto in the eye of the storm
