Some people are pretty positive.
They look on the bright side.
It doesn’t matter how bad,
They will find something good.
This is, I think, a great way to be.
It is a straight way to happiness.
The only problem with it is
They are not prepared.
Sometimes life does not treat you well.
Sometimes things happen that are unexpected.
And sometimes life changes you.
Life can change you from a positive person
To someone who looks down every alley,
Wondering at every shadow.
And if you come to this crossroads,
Beware thoughts that come in the night.
If darkness finds you, it will hold on tight.
It will not be easy to shake it off.
For you have been through something
That has changed you forever.
You will doubt, and you will fear.
You will become something
That you may have run from
All of your life.
