Affliction or Blessing?

It is an affliction I suffer,  
to see only the good in people around me. 
Does it make me sick?

Or is it a (mixed) blessing I behold?  
to see only the good in people around me.
 It stifles the crap that ruins my fragile mind!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I find it hard to criticise or see the bad In people because we are all so different and often make mistakes. I am a very accepting and tolerant person! But is it something that I should 'reign in' sometimes? For the benefit of me? I don't know.

    Interesting poem. I can easily relate to it. I took have the affliction or blessing of only being able to see the good in people. In my fair opinion it's a blessing. To many people focus on the bad in themselves and each other. So focusing on the good isn't bad to me. Thank you for sharing this poem :)

    To see only good in people is the highest trait a person can possess. It indicates a lovingness that we all should strive after. Of course, this lovingness, needs to be be cautious in this crazy world; nevertheless, love on Stevie.

    When we werar our hearts on our sleve, choosing to see only good, we will be hurt and trampled on at times, but overall, after the fire burns low- Our heart will always be the better for it I know. Great write Stevie! ! !
