I was just on a friend’s blog today and for the month of August she made writing prompts for the 31 days and I chose to write about 5) Cynicism at its Finest. I hope y’all enjoy my haikus. Please comment and tell me your thoughts.

My Haikus

1.) What has happened to

our world why do we believe

that cynicism is life.

2.) People should believe

that there is still good in this

world but cynicism wins.

3.) Why are we humans

letting cynicism win instead

of optimism.

4.) The end of public discourse,

the spread of cynicism,

we are less polite.

5.) His feelings hid deep

behind a wall of cynicism

and one of distrust.

Some Cynicism Quotes

“In the end, that’s what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope?”

~ Barack Obama

“Obviously, if people love a movie, and it has the possibility of continuation, then there is going to be a question of whether it’s worth doing another one. There’s also cynicism and skepticism about sequels.”

~ Colin Firth

“The biggest hurdle that our communities have is cynicism – saying it’s a done deal, who cares; there’s no point to voting. If we can get somebody to care, it’s a huge victory for the movement and the causes we’re trying to advance.”

~ Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

“My comedy does not come from a place of deep cynicism, and I tend to play characters who are naive in some way.”

~ Anna Faris
