The Glass- half empty or half full?

People who wonder whether the glass is half empty or half full miss the point. The glass is refillable.

When I was younger I used to see

My life as a glass half empty

My present life I would view

Pessimistically, in a bluish hue

My future, on the other hand

I would imagine to be grand

All my optimism was reserved

For the future I thought I deserved

The glass that I viewed as half-empty

I expected would be filled, eventually..


Hurtling towards middle age these days

I have obviously changed in many ways

Many aspirations of younger years

Have been realized, others have disappeared

Comfortable at the place I am right now

In the journey of life, I view somehow

The glass as half full in my life at present

It could be filled some more, but I am content

The optimism of future has been replaced

By an optimistic present; now I face

The future prospects of aging and its ills

I must admit that pessimism sometimes fills

My heart when the future I contemplate

My life is best in my current state..


The gist of my rambling verse is this-

Partially full the glass of happiness always is!
