Choose to follow the breadcrumbs of hope
scattered by those who refuse
to be buried beneath the weight
of pessimism and despair.

Not always easy to spot,
but look close, they are there,
waiting to lead you home.

Author’s note:
I wrote the poem then went searching for an image on Pixabay and came across this. To me it is the perfect illustration. Thank you to Image by Sami M’rad from Pixabay
