in an age of cynicism

choose to love,

choose to trust instead.

throw away judgement and scrutiny,

pick up hope and optimism.

it’s easy to pick out the faults and failures,

but what if we looked at each other

and at society

-ourselves-

with eyes

searching for the good,

and not the bad?

maybe we’ll find that we don’t need to strive for self-improvement;

and instead

we just need to learn to appreciate

ourselves.
