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.'

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
