“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” -Helen Keller


Forged in the refineries of the heart,

Yet hidden away like the ore of iron.

The diamond of possibility,

Giving power to all of us.


So somewhere deep,

Riddled within a cave or cranny.

We may discover our full potential,

Grasping it in our reach.
