Not everything is bad or ugly when seen as negative


It is a concern to me

that some would ascribe

negative to be

a thing to deride

even to hide

but that is not the case you see.

There within its view

I can see so much fresh

so much new 

an inner peace before denied

because it was thought

negative should hide

I wonder why?

A change of colours

that blend so well

not all black and white

you see hidden things so well,

almost akin to anothers opinion

do not call it negative

pause and listen,

maybe like the colours

they have a view point

that you are too rigid

so you shut it out.

Negative can be not always the obvious

sometimes it can seem

even the most dangerous,

as with the cramped road

that leads to everlasting life

a first look at it

some might turn aside.

So listen and look

when negative comes

be open to a view

that your heart

has not won.

Sometimes it is better to be negative then be sorry. Excellent write, John.

GOD BLESS YOU
