Happy Thoughts, Happy Thoughts, Think Happy Thoughts - Poem by shannon wright

I have to keep reminding myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts.)
You wanted me to promise to never say it again
Those three words
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Which is laughably easy to do right now because
We are so far out of touch I couldn’t reach you if I tried
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
So I plod through grey days and inky dark nights
Heavy laden with regret
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Tomorrow I will remind myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.

    Time to turn that frown upside down!

    Turn that lemon life gave you into lemonade!

    Don't you just hate 'positive thinkers' sometimes? They are pretending that half of the life force (the pain, ugliness, misery that is part of life and therefore part of God) does not exist...
