The Glass Half Full: A Poem
I'd like to write poetry of joy
describing all as nice and well
but it might only bore and annoy
all those minds under realism spell.
So, if I would ever want to share
something like a blissful feeling
not so many would really care
let alone see it as appealing.
Well, negativity is not my cup of tea
I attended a different life school
but I could write in a lower key
not of a glass being half-full.
Maybe out of need to belong
I'd find me someone to blame
with curses convincing and strong
raining on someone's camp fire flame.
But then again, it wouldn't really be me
so let us try to agree the glass is half-full
and if it's not what everyone wants to see
let them keep for themselves negative bull.
