Sometimes we begin,
with the best of all attentions,
but we secretly close ourselves
off. We draw the curtains close. We wear
our sunglasses. We begin to feel that there is
no more bright side,
to this life.
But in reality we have shun
the bright side away.
We close ourselves off to illuminations,
We close ourselves off to blue skies,
sunshine, and warm pretty places.
Suddenly our world slips,
from black & white,
into only gray.
We forget about the light.
And the light itself, it grows its wings,
it flies away,
but only because we refuse,
to seek it out.
Life is not only one-sided.
Everyday, there are equal amounts,
of darkness and light
dancing and playing.
Ask yourself, quite honestly, which are
you seeking? The darkness or the light?
Or the beauty found in both?
A glass neither half empty or half full-
remains just a glass, with some water in it
after all…will you drink it or not?
but still glass remains just a glass.
