I want to believe

I want to believe
in the goodness of people;
hopeful optimist.

I want your beliefs
to inspire and move people;
rosy idealist.

I want self-belief
in the face of pessimists;
positive realist.

Artist's Description

Short haiku musings on the nature of optimism, idealism, pessimism and realism. And the last stanza took me a while to write because I wanted to use the word positive, but initially questioned is it possible to be a positive realist? and then answered – yes, we can be realistic, but positive in our own understanding of something. And rather than shifting the word to pragmatic, I often think there are negative ways in which reality is treated. Welcome debate and critique in the comments everyone!!!
