Outlook (#252)

Why read into something that’s not there,
Isn’t there enough drama to spare?
It’s natural for life to have ups and downs,
But wouldn’t you rather have smiles than frowns?
No one says you must be positive 24-7,
But your outlook could use some leaven,
Why is it harder to see the good and not bad?
Must your resolute negativity be so ironclad?
For once try not thinking the absolute worst,
Not everything in life is always cursed,
Not everyone says things between the lines,
Nor is life littered with danger signs,
It’s not as bad as everything seems,
Just for once embrace your hopes and dreams,
