Beating Negativity With Positivity - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

As I rise
through the ashes of life
I open my eyes
ready to fight

Look into my eyes
see no lies as I say
I can not be defeated

I will fight you
anyway you want me to
but beware I will defeat you
feel the power of positivity
running through my mind

I will defeat you

    We have to wage an eternal battle to subdue negativity...! Bitter experiences tend to make us pessimistic.... but through fighting spirit and indefatigable will, we have to overpower our enemy and become positive! A fine write! ! (Report) Reply
