Oh Positivity! Where were you, in times of misery,
When only cold winds of anger and self-pity surrounded me?
Why do you appear only in bursts of sunshine,
When all seems well with the world?
Oh Fair weather friend! What are the charms that
Authors of self help books have seen in your eyes?
Will you not reveal to me, the 'Secrets' of the universe?
Or show me the ways to 'think and grow rich'?
Would you please stay? Would you make me realise
That the glass is really half full, that the pit i am in
Could have been deeper and bleaker,
That the darkest hour of night is just before dawn sets in?
Oh Positivity, my friend! Where art thou?
