It's All In How You Choose To Look

    Today I woke up to say……
    The sun shines bright behind the clouds.
    The tulips are red beneath the dirt.
    And I hear sweet music in the thunderclouds.

    The shells adds texture to my eggs.
    My torn blouse will vent the heat.
    The broken TV allows for sweeter pursuits;
    yes, this day’s perfections’ complete.

    It’s all in how you choose to look;
    to see the way things are.
    You could choose to see a burning rock
    or the more beautiful falling star.

    Today with all my spirits high
    I saw behind the clouds - the sun.
    And pushing deep from underground
    the tulips red will soon be done.

    As so, I can ignore the shells
    and turn a blind eye to a tear.
    Rather than become upset, I
    choose not to miss the TV’s blare.

    Then BAM - like the striking of a clock
    my mood has turned to dark despair
    and all those things that didn’t matter
    are things I can’t help now but care.

    Nothing ever goes right for me.
    No one cares to see they do.
    I tire of living through this pain.
    Perhaps death and I should rendezvous.

    Or, I think, instead, I’ll return to bed
    and go back to my slumber.
    I pray when once again I wake
    I’ll hear music in the thunder.

    These parts are my favorite.
    The TV is a curse hiding behind leisure.
    Ideas pushed into your mind because you can become to lazy to think for yourself.
    It's horrible being prey for media bias.

    I like it. Good structure and a sort of "plot line".

    How true that we can find the positives, yet sometimes the "other" mood just hits and obliterates the positives. I tend to retreat back to bed when that happens, too.

    Well done!
