There is always a plenty of reasons to
Amplify and magnify
Of our own life problems;
To the point of becoming identified
And immensely immersed,
A poisonous acidity
That can easily percolate
Into different ramifications
Of our own short lives
If we are easily caught off guard.
And this is mainly because
Being a pessimist
Doesn’t take much of an effort
Ladies and Gentlemen.
What is wrong is always going to be
For us to label
Into some sort of short-sighted
Which in the moment
It might seem like the right thing to do,
Don’t get me wrong
We have all been there before!
But in retrospective,
Is just fatal
For the soul to be draining its vitality
And sense of morality
That deviates us
From savoring this delightful rollercoaster ride
That we all so-call life!
Because there is uniqueness
In our own existence
Just like there is hidden blissfulness
Disguised as sickness, setbacks, and failures
Because sometimes these are meant to happen!
To thicken our skin and test our resilience.
Because life doesn’t happen at our own
Phase nor convenience.
Regardless of how
Pre-planned, pre-determined, or pre-calculated
As we might want it to be…
Is just a matter of how we react
Positivity or negativity,
Only one of them has the proclivity
To launch us into divinity,
And as long as we don’t force
The flow of life
With reckless impulsivity,
I assure you that the universe
Will caress our souls
And treat us nicely.
So don’t worry
Just choose wisely
Because everything is going to be alright.
