Hope in hoplesness I travel my usual bus route back to downtown I look out  the window and notice something slightly different in the normally unchanged scenery. There is an apartment building, a run-down poverty crying two story unmaintained building It's gray stucco is has layers of city grime, and the blinds inside are yellowed with uncaredfor age and always pulled tightly shut. This afternoon though, there is a difference. In one of the upper apartment windows, the blind is pulled wide open and, spread out on the windowsill, are little pretty objects of decoration. In a building that has always screamed hopelessness, there is now a soft blossom of hope.

-have a cup of optimisim-
