My Glass of Water

BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.


On my kitchen table
There's always a glass of water
I always ensure the water is hot
But I never fill the glass;
Some will see it and say
''Oh! Your glass is half empty''
What do we call them?
-Pessimists
Some will see it and say
''Hey! Your glass is half full"
What do we call them?
-Optimists
But I like them both
Because they give honest opinions
And they make me think harder
So that I see life differently
Yes, from all dimensions
They make me space out
And build movies of my life
Both in my poor state
And my wealthy state.
