The Death of Perpetual Optimism

You realize that you are at your lowest point
     When there is no need to consult anyone for advice or comfort
Because either no one can or will help you.

You figure out that empathy does you no good, 
      If people allow you to fall flat on your face
      Expressed regret is useless as well,
If people will continue to make the same mistakes.

Truth belies Platitudes.
