Positivity - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

When overcome by black despair you can’t find beauty anywhere.
There is no point in finding fault; it is past time to call a halt.
I find that when I’m feeling blue. It helps to change my point of view. Why it that the world seems grey, nothing is has changed since yesterday.

To find the answer look inside to where you’re inmost thoughts abide.
It’s not a choice, it is a must there’s something which you must adjust.
When that’s corrected you will see the world with greater clarity
There is still beauty to be found you merely have to look around.

It is entirely up to you to reassess your point of view
Accentuate the positive and disregard the negative.
By keeping to the middle way and treating every single day.
As a new challenge to be met your miseries you can forget.
