A Story by JD Major

It Doesn't Exist 12 lines

"In reality, Professor, 
is optimism a person's best trait?"
"In reality, Lisa, it doesn't exist."
"You're wrong. Look at me, I'm optimistic!"
"Optimism is hope, and hope is illusion
the opposite of reality."
"My Illusions are the oomph that get 
me up in the morning and 
keep me in the game."
"...What's your point, Lisa?"
"Illusion is my reality, Professor."
"...And so the student is the teacher."

Ditto, I can't argue with that either. Nice argument on her part and in the end, indeed, the student is the teacher. Very, very cool.

Can't argue with that. Hope is a powerful tool.
