The Dark Side of Positive Thinking

I always thought it was a sham;
people who suffered much but put on a smile

acting as if everything was fine,
research has proven the discrepancy
in their thinking about their reality

creates a gap… a dark hole 

which happy thoughts and happy words
can never fill. By not acknowledging the truth
they’re quick to anger and aggressively force
circumstances to fit their pictures 

rather than to face what is really happening in their lives.

There can be no growth, if failure is never acknowledged
nothing can change if pretense and make-believe
cover-up the truth with sleeping pills and mood adjusters

better to suffer what there is to suffer,
get strength from the bottom rung of life
make decisions and get moving 

to make the real changes the heart desires.
