    live life to the fullest
    they say to me

    every cloud has a silver lining
    they say again

    see the glass as half full
    they keep repeating

    so much emphasis on happy
    which I'm not

    sad for so long, will it
    go away soon

    I don't know when it will stop,
    when the happy comes

    I see no point to this
    but I will fight

    I can only hope for change
    for happiness

    maybe soon it will lift
    and I will forget

    to forget is to be free
    and happy

    wistfully wishing for a happy time
    I cry

    live life to the fullest
    I know, I try

    I can relate a lot to this poem as well as feel the emotions it describes. Sadness from such a natural pessimistic outlook yet frustration from optimistic peers just not understanding how you try to view things like they do.
