Optimist, optimist, You see only what you want to see;
Writer's Statement: Writing has always been my way to delve into myself and see my thoughts from an objective perspective. Simultaneously, reading other poets' work has offered me great comfort, especially during this difficult period. These poems explore themes of existentialism and mental strength, a message which I hope to impart to my readers. Writing and reading are a form of catharsis, and I am grateful to do my part to help others through my passion for words.
