Poetry by Donnah Clark. I hope you enjoy!

The game of nirvana battles wits
with opportunity.  The pathetic collapses
Beneath toxic verbal dominance.
Left or right, matters none
A hemisphere for everything
Optimistic philosophy finds its niche
An attitude makeover subtly reigns.
Negligence to stand, a herd’s trait
Binds opportunities for failure
Existence years expended in vain!
So, converse with your soul but keep it proper
Illiterate self-talk is a destroyer of people.

    Agreed, optimism is the key.

    Lovely. I am not one much for illiterate self talk either. I think it is up to each of us to learn as much we are capable of learning.
