• Thinking

    by Erika McLitus

    STOP.
    endless looping arguments,
    paradoxical logic traps leading to
    p a n i c k e d
    fatalistic conclusions,
    misjudgments,
    brooding.
    STOP.
    you don’t know
    everything w*o*n*d*e*r*f*u*l
    doesn’t just disappear
    even if THAT did.
    trust.
    choose to be optimistic
    because you want to be.
    don’t smother the hope
    that’s fluttering inside,
    trying to twist a maybe into a certainty.
    believe
    because you want it to be true.
    Sometimes it’s as simple as that.
