Be Positive


'No matter what the others do,
Be and think positive...
If only for you.'

Tell me why,
Should I...
Give that a try?

'Be positive.'

Tell me why...
When,
People negative...
Seem very proud of it,
With a showing of a negativity...
In the midst.
And,
Within their grip!

'Be positive.'

Tell me why,
Should I...
Give that a try?
When people negative,
Seem very proud of it.

'Forget what others do,
Be true to you.
And think positive.'

Tell me why?

'Don't let them beat you,
Just be positive.'

Tell me why?

'Don't let them beat you,
Just be positive.'

Tell me why?

'Forget what others do,
Be true to only you.
And think positive.'

Tell me why?

'Don't let them beat you,
Just be positive.'

Tell me why?

'Don't let them beat you or defeat you,
Just...
Be positive.'

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
