PAD Challenge day 22: write a pessimist poem. Write an optimist poem

Like children
We press our faces to hope’s window
In eager expectation

But darkness
Fills the air with raindrops
And no explanation

One by one
The faces in the window disappear
Save where

They linger
Knowing hope remains as long
As there are children
...and prayer
