It's all in your mind

It's a beautiful day,
why are you so down?
and why must you frown?
Have you been outside to play?

your mind has you bound,
it's all in your head,
when all you say,
is that you are so depressed.

it doesn't have to be this way,
you could make the most of this day,
or you could just go deeper into the shadows,
lurking somewhere in the fray.

what do you think you will find?
do you think it will be different this time?
you don't have to grieve today,
cause you're allowed to be happy,
and your life can change with a shift of perspective.

get out of the shadows,
and into the light,
the day will be over soon,
it's up to you,
life doesn't have to bite.

So why not embrace this day,
and take it for a stroll,
pretend you're a clown,
if that's what it takes, I say
the happier you will be found.

It's always been there,
right before your eyes,
life is not always fair,
and you don't always win the prize.

if you can't keep it real,
just pretend to smile,
it's like a drug,
all in your mind,
believe me, life is worthwhile,
and it can even be kind.

Great poem Stacy. Although what your poem suggests isnt always an easy thing to do, you are so right. Everything is a mindset and we DO have choices of how to perceive ANY situation. I just wanted to say that I really appreciated your words. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Take care,
