This is a comment I left on Kathy's post today. Just one of those impulses you have to obey. Kathy asked me to post this.
I hope you feel better soon!

Re: Pessimism

in the long run
those with short legs are left behind
with joys that stay true.

you must move on
but I am stuck on off
waiting to feel the brush of angel wings.

things will get better
when something worse happens
but your share will be only what you can bear.

don't dwell in the negative
but i have no other home
unless i choose to build one from joys I have known.

make lemonade out of lemons
I lost the lemons in the storm
so I'd rather make blueberry muffins. (I'm addicted to blueberries)

the sun will come out
but it's hidden behind the clouds
which ensure that I never cry alone.

look on the bright side
but my eyes have been eaten by crows
therefore, I listen to the softly playing music.

love will find a way
exactly; it went away
to be preserved for posterity, to warm a loveseat for me.
