I’ve learned to see this world in both light and darkness.
I know the contrast of these two things.
There is beauty all around,
you just have to look for it.
But if you’re like me,
you don’t know how,
you’ve never learned.
You can’t pick out the good in a situation.
You see, my mind doesn’t automatically
pick out the positive things.
My mind is cosmically
that doesn’t mean I’m not trying.
Each day I have to tell myself that life is beautiful,
go out and search for it.
because if even one day I don’t,
my mind will tell me that life doesn’t fit
for people like me.
I’ve started to see that life can be beautiful.
I will start training my mind
to adapt this new mindset,
because I refuse to let this be a dictatorship.
