Some folks focus only on the negative
and like a wind-up doll
they keep telling the same sad tale
to whomever will listen.
I’m not sure why
some folks only dwell on the negative,
what’s not right
what someone did them
I have no patience for those stories
they don’t help the victim
nor the listener to move forward.
Often, the person telling the story
will insist it’s the absolute truth
but every story has many sides.
You might select to only see/hear
the version that makes you comfortable.
Well I’m inviting you
to stop telling sad, victimhood stories
about your life.
Find the good , the light, the joy.
Make yourself a hero
–find the myriad shades
evident in the ocean and other
things in nature– and speak
those realities too and you might
just find your way to more light.
