The Struggle Within
It’s a battle with myself, it’s a constant war
to stay positive, and not to give in to the more
destructive feelings deep inside my head,
for if I did, I’d never get out of bed
Every day, I have to fight not to let negative win,
to not think, “Oh no, here we go again!”
My first thought about something is down
I always see something and frown,
I guess I’m a glass is half empty kind of guy,
but I guess I should ask myself why?
I don’t like this scowl constantly on my face,
but somehow, a smile looks out of place
I don’t want people to be in fear
that, “Oh no, the downer guy is here!”
I want to lift up, and not drive away
with the words that I say
I don’t want to be a wet blanket,
I realize my view of the world is all bent
towards the negative, towards the down side
I want to be more positive, or a least say I tried!
